I actually saw it last weekend with my fiance, it was her turn to pick the movie... Well, to be completely honest, I was not impressed. I left the theater kind of numb because I wasn't sure how to feel about the movie. It was not really triggering to me, however, in my opinion it was almost defending the teacher in a way. it seemes to me that the writer/director was trying to portray the teacher in a way that would make the viewer sympathetic to her, because at the same time that she was a perp, she was also a victim. i just couldn't find the sympathy inside me. My fiance saw it as a perspective on human relationships... and maybe thats what it was. I just had/have a hard time deciphering exactly what I thought about it. so.. i guess in short, if you feel like analyzing deviant human sexuality, then sure check it out. maybe i'm overly critical, but, i'd have prefered to see this on dvd, if at all.
hope i haven't ruined it for anyone that might be interested... this is only my opinion of course.
