Trivia

In close up scenes with Allison McAtee, Sarah Stouffer had to frequently stand on an apple box to reach Allison McAtee. If you watch carefully, towards the beginning of the movie you can see them standing next to one another and there is almost a 2 foot difference in height between the two actresses. See more »

Quotes

Catherine: It's like if you... if you deny yourself something long enough... for whatever self-imposed reason, you know, the moment you are faced with any real external imposition you're going to voluntarily want to do the thing that you were trying so hard not to do.

Zero Chemistry
4 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really wanted to like this film, but I saw no chemistry between the lead characters at all.

The character of Jackie exhibited no real emotional response to her professor, and the professor was totally casual throughout the film. I expected sparks to fly. You have a perfect setup, a great premise for the film with lots of genuine opportunity for conflict. Instead, it was as exciting as a paint by numbers picture. I really was disappointed that there was no real passion exhibited between any of the characters. Even the fights were subdued and drab.

As for the sex, if you are going to imply the sex, rather than show it(which is alright with me), at least make it implied passion.

The characters looked like they were just going through the motions.
