음모

영화 는 텍사스 교외의 고등학교 영어 교사 인 Diana Watts ( Lindsay Burdge ) 와 함께 시작됩니다 . 어느 날 방과 후 Diana는 룸메이트 인 Sophia (Jennifer Prediger)와 함께 술집에 나가고 있습니다. 그는 Diana가 Eric이라는 사람에게 계속 문자를 보내는 것을 알아 차립니다. 그녀는 다이애나에게 그가 누구이며 어떻게 만났는지 놀리며 물었다. 다이애나는 교활한 미소를 지으며 "나는 그를 학교에서 만났다"고 대답했다. 나중에 Diana는 그녀의 차에서 기다리고있는 모습을 보여줍니다. 다른 차가 차를 세우고 학생 중 한 명인 Eric Tull ( Will Brittain )이 밖으로 나옵니다. 그는 다이애나의 차에 타서 따로 떠나기 전에 섹스를한다.

수업 시간에 다이애나와 에릭은 서로를 몰래 쳐다보고 혼자가 될 시간을 찾는 것 외에도 그들의 관계를 숨기기 위해 정상적으로 행동하려고 노력합니다. Diana는 때때로 누군가가 그들을 잡을 것이라고 긴장하는 것처럼 보이지만, 그녀는 Eric에게 매혹되어 계속 그를 만납니다.

어느 날, 다른 선생님들 중 일부가 다이애나를 방과 후 술 한잔에 초대했지만 그녀는 오빠가 마을에 있다고 말하면서 거절합니다. 그녀의 오빠가 어머니에 대해 이야기하기 위해 음성 메일을 남겼으며 그녀는 "이것을 계속 피할 수 없다"고 밝혔다. 그녀는 그녀의 오빠 인 헌터 (조니 마스)를 만나지 만, 그가 쇠퇴하는 어머니의 건강을 되찾자 마자 다이애나는 압도 당하고 떠난다.

Some time later, Diana and Eric are in bed together when she tells him she's the happiest she has been in a long time. Back at home, Diana and Sophia discuss their plans for Thanksgiving. Sophia eagerly tells Diana that she wants to introduce her to some cute single men, Rich (Cody Haltom) and Dan (Matthew Genitempo), at a party. While Sophia is talking, Diana walks into the bathroom to take a topless photo to send to Eric. She later attends the party with Sophia and meets Rich and Dan, both of whom she finds uninteresting. She makes an excuse to leave the party early.

After the holiday break, Diana is eating lunch in the teacher's lounge when a fellow teacher named Jessica (Julie Phillips) tells her that a topless photo of a student has been going around the school. While Jessica laments how careless young teenagers can be, Diana realizes that the photo she sent Eric could be spread just as easily. She meets with Eric after school in the parking lot and asks him to delete the photo, which he does. Eric meets up with her on another occasion and tells her that a girl asked him to the Sadie Hawkins dance. Diana becomes jealous, but Eric reassures her that it means nothing and he is only going with this girl so things do not seem suspicious.

Later on, Diana and Eric go on a weekend getaway at his family's ranch. The next morning, as they are having sex, the ranch foreman, James (Don Hampton), arrives at the property and, noticing Eric's car, knocks on the door. Diana rushes to hide in the bathroom while Eric speaks to James. After James has left, Diana is visibly shaken and asks a nonchalant Eric if James will tell his father. Eric tells her there is nothing to worry about but, unassured, Diana stresses to him that she could lose her job if they are found out. She tells him they should put their relationship on hold for a while and goes to the porch to be alone. Eric joins her and tries to seduce her, eventually getting rough and aggressive. She pushes him away angrily.

After they have returned to school, Diana asks Eric one day if they can talk after class. He comes to her classroom, where she confesses that she misses him and invites him to come over later. During the conversation, Jessica comes into the classroom and accidentally interrupts them. Diana tries to play it off as a school-related meeting.

Later, at her house, Diana and Eric begin having sex when she starts to act increasingly unstable. She goes from pushing him away, saying that what they are doing is wrong, to clinging to him and begging him to stay. Frustrated with her erratic behavior, Eric storms out right as Sophia is returning home. Sophia watches in shock as Diana desperately chases after Eric.

Diana immediately gets in her car and drives to Eric's house, where she sits outside in her car. When he doesn't pick up her calls, she calls his family's landline. Eric's father (Chris Doubek) answers and when she asks for Eric, he tells her it is late and, assuming she is a classmate, advises that she speak to him at school the next day. Diana then sneaks up to Eric's bedroom window to try to get him to speak with her. Eric begrudgingly goes outside, where she pleadingly tells him that they can "work through this" and that, since he will be attending college at the University of Texas the following year, they can "stay together." Eric rebuffs her advances and his father comes outside to check on him, causing Diana to run back to her car and leave.

She drives herself to a motel, and once she checks into a room, she checks her voicemail. She has received a message from a staff member at the school, telling her that there is an issue with one of her students, Eric Tull, whose father is at the school, and it is important that she call back immediately. The film ends with Diana curled up on the bed, crying as she realizes the repercussions of her actions.

Reception

Critical response

The film received mixed reviews from film critics. Review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes gave the film 32% from 31 reviews.[14] Marsha McCreadie from RogerEbert.com wrote: "A Teacher will leave you feeling drained, even exhausted. That's about right for a movie about obsession, one with no resolution except waiting for the other thud to drop... Much of the movie takes place in dark interiors. The love-making scenes are steamy, seemingly passionate; risqué not pornographic. Happily, a little something is left to the imagination. Though after a while you're itchy to get out of the bedroom, or the old high school staple, the car. The "one-room" claustrophobia is reminiscent of being trapped in the love-nest of Last Tango in Paris... To her great credit, director Fidell – named by Filmmaker Magazine as one of the 25 New Faces of Independent Film – takes on a tricky topic. She even gets us to empathize with the person in the power spot."[15]

The New York Post wrote: "A teacher sexually obsessed with the high school student with whom she's having an illicit affair gradually loses her bearings in an evocative but ultimately hollow indie drama. Writer-director Hannah Fidell makes the common indie mistake of thinking that a dramatic situation is all you need for a movie, but demonstrates an impressive restraint and an ability to manufacture queasy suspense without much dialogue."[16] Ignatiy Vishnevetsky from The A.V. Club gave a positive review, writing: "Because contemporary indies tend to overvalue broad generational statements, A Teacher – which is candid, character focused, and only 75 minutes long – initially feels like a breath of fresh air. (The movie draws inevitable comparisons to the recent The Lifeguard, which is also about a female ephebophile.) Very little time is wasted on exposition; when the movie starts, Burdge is already meeting for regular trysts with teenager Will Brittain... Writer-director Hannah Fidell works in a style that's arty but simple: naturalistic lighting, camera movement that always follows character movement, and a modernist score (by Brian McOmber, formerly of Dirty Projectors) that conveys dread without ever suggesting outright horror."[17]
