Part psychological thriller and part provocative character study, A TEACHER explores the unraveling of a young high school teacher, Diana, after she begins an affair with one of her teenage students, Eric. What starts as a seemingly innocent fling becomes increasingly complex and dangerous as the beautiful and confident Diana gets fully consumed by her emotions, crossing boundaries and acting out in progressively startling ways. Lindsay Burdge delivers a deeply compelling and seamlessly naturalistic performance that brings us into the mind of an adult driven to taboo against her better judgment.
In this provocative psychological thriller a young high school teacher unravels after she begins a torrid love affair with one of her teenage students. What starts as an innocent fling soon becomes dangerous and destructive.
Inaccurately described as a thriller as it only depicts the affair between the student and teacher with some hints about being caught. It isn't worth spending time on this one.....other movies are better.
Great acting on both their parts. It was too dark at times so hard to see what was happening. A bit slow.
Good movie. I would imagine more that the student get's more dependant than a more mature young woman who has no realistic and no future with that kind of a relationship. Good acting and worth watching.
It was ok. But slow and predictable.
