Diana Watts is an English teacher at Westerbrook High School in Austin, Texas. A longtime and continuing undisclosed issue between her and her mother may be only one factor in Diana looking for love in the wrong place. That place is at school, as she has just embarked on a secret affair with one of her students, Eric Tull. This relationship is the most fulfilling she's had in quite some time. A few incidents and the first real close call in being caught leads to Diana calling off the affair several months in, as she finally comes to the understanding that being caught would certainly mean the end of her teaching career and her good reputation. This close time away from Eric also gives Diana the opportunity to look at their relationship through a slightly different perspective, with the old adage of absence making the heart grow fonder kicking in. As such, Diana gets torn between doing what she knows is the right thing by staying away from Eric, or listening to her troubled heart, her ... Written by Huggo

27 September 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

cold, not new subject but interesting, a honest film and a not very inspired. not remarkable but not so bad. only a realistic story who has not the best manner to translate the subject on screen. in fact, only great problem are the memories about Notes of a Scandal adaptation and the impression than the story seems be a form of improvisation. but, in fact, it has two virtues - the reflection of reality ( cold relations with family members, solitude as cage and escape, need of love as only need of sex ) and a portrait of Emma Bovary in the XXI century. is it enough ? maybe. but the few sparkles of images, the common story, the end are good points for a not memorable but far to be really boring film.
