Annabelle is the wise-beyond-her-years newcomer to an exclusive Catholic girls school. Having been expelled from her first two schools she's bound to stir some trouble. Sparks fly between her and her teacher, Simone Bradley. Annabelle pursues Simone relentlessly until Simone must make a choice between following her heart and doing what's right.Written by
In the scene when Annabelle leaves the end-of-year ball with St. Peters to retrieve her guitar and the music for a song she wrote earlier, a poster is plainly visible on the wall above her bedside table, featuring the band that originally wrote and performed the song she is about to sing.

When Annabelle goes to Simone's room after the day at the beach, in the first shot of Simone staring at the ceiling the bedside clock is clearly reading 11:29. The scene cuts back to Annabelle starting to knock on the door then hesitating and leaving. The next shot, again of Simone, shows the clock reading 11:24, a jump backward in time. See more »

Maybe you could carry them in your pocket or hide them in your bag where no one could see them.
I'll think about it.
Why are you making this so hard?
The first person I fell in love with gave them to me.
You still in love with him?
*She* moved to Europe last year with her family.

After hearing the "buzz" surrounding this movie, I finally got my chance to see Loving Annabelle at its premiere in San Jose this weekend (hooray for my girlfriend for scoring tickets to the sold out show!) I've never written a review before but I really dig this movie, so I will do my best! My initial reaction after watching was....they finally got it right, more specifically, writer Katherine Brooks got it right.
I've never really been a fan of "lesbian" movies because I could never get into the story lines or characters; they've all seemed a bit over the top. The only movie I could actually relate to up until now was "All Over Me" If you haven't seen it...go rent it!! Loving Annabelle is such a straightforward love story that fortunately doesn't involve lesbian circus performers or travelin' hippie painters. It's an amazing, well-written story that I can relate to being the product of Catholic schooling. The best part...the super hot sex scene! Now, now yes it was HOT but I loved it because like the movie, it to was straightforward, passionate, necessary. Thank god there weren't any crazy camera angles, I mean lesbians have sex!! so thank you Katherine Brooks for not showing just a hand run up and down a body...that would have been sooo boring and unrealistic!! I give this movie 2 thumbs way up for giving me something I can relate to, for being such a straightforward story about love, letting go, putting happiness first, etc.
Now as an added bonus, since it was the premiere I was able to nervously chat with writer/director Katherine Brooks and the 2 leads (ALL HOT by the way) and they were all so super cool so it makes the movie that much more enjoyable
