Storyline

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

Worst Movie I've Ever Seen.
23 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

I waited the whole thing through to see if the plot would develop any depth..... and then it ended. This was a terrible terrible movie. So extremely boring. You never even got to know ANY of the characters. Ugh so bland! I love movies and I know that there lies some type of beauty in each of them, even if it is not my cup of tea, but this one. Wow. Can I ever get that 1hr plus time back? Yes there is room for growth, but this movie has been produced, we can't go back in time. I am surprised Netflix took this one on. Oh well, you win some, you lose some. I know some will beg to differ, but holy cow don't waste your time!
