strong relationships
8 June 2001 | by See all my reviews

When i sat down to watch this film i thought that it would be another story about a kids infatuation with an older person, and it would go nowhere. But i was very supprised and pleased that it had some depth to it. Nick falls in love with his teacher and at first she doesnt want to know, as she is engaged and is planning a big wedding. Nick persists and she finally gives in. I dont want to give too much away about the film, but if your looking for a film about very strong relationships, then definatly see this one.
