Maria Irene Fornes,
Mrs. Géquil is a teacher despised by her colleagues and students. On a stormy night, she is struck by lightning and faints. When she wakes up, she immediately feels reinvigorated and becomes a better and more engaging teacher overnight, while even bonding with some of the students. Even her sex life with her husband improves. However, there is a downside to this when the moon is full. Will she be able to keep the powerful and dangerous fiery creature dubbed Mrs. Hyde contained and continue to use her newfound creativity and lust for life for good?
The only thing worse than sci-fi is sci-fi done badly. Isabelle gets some glow-in-the dark powers. When her inner light comes on she can kill a school kid, or she can just sit on a bench outside her home and stare at the moon. Whatever. There is a lack of continuity and understanding here. It's as if the filmmakers want you to guess what just happened knowing you'll never figure it out. Nevah! In short order, why does she only care about one student (the guy Malik) and none of the others? They are all behaving like animals, but Malik is the object of her attention. Everyone else is chopped liver. What causes her mysterious glow to turn and off? Stress? Stubbed her toe? Hot flashes? Why is she so nasty to her bleeding heart sappy doormat of a husband? Besides Malik, the only other "thing" that happens is her tribulations in earning tenure. Which at one instant looks like an epic fail and in the next is her fait accompli. I gave an hour and a half to this malarky and I'm worse off for it.
