The intelligent Annabelle starts in an elite Catholic girls' boarding high school after being expelled from the previous 2 schools. She's open about being lesbian. She's attracted to her teacher, Simone.
An uptight and conservative woman, working on tenure as a literacy professor at a large urban university, finds herself strangely attracted to a free-spirited, liberal woman who works at a local carnival that comes to town.
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

Whoever marked this film close to 7 must have been gay. And I am serious here. As movies go, neither the acting nor the plot made any sense. It felt like a student movie about lesbian relationships in catholic schools. I am not saying that the acting was bad, it just didn't add up. And the plot is ludicrous.
I understand this type of movie making when you are talking documentaries or biographies or films based on real events. There you can't really make an interesting and captivating story because you have to stick to history, but not here, especially when the main story is the love between a literature teacher and her student in a classy and expensive private school. One just expects more subtlety, a more elaborate plot, some sort of moral.
Bottom line: one just gets bored watching it. The only way you could possibly enjoy this is if the film relates to a personal story of a similar category, like a crush on a teacher or some forbidden girl love episode. If this film meant something for the movie maker, it certainly did not manage to relay the same feelings to the viewer.
