The other good little Canadian movie. I am really tired of every other movie having to be a Lolita story, but this one is told quite well, and almost avoids becoming creepy, and wrong. There is a point very early in this movie that you see the who, and you see the what, it is just such a shame that a movie starting out in such a unique way had to just go that route. I was really impressed with the development of Molly, and in a few short months Lola Tash playing Molly truly shows a lot of growth, and demonstrates a real understanding for the character that she is playing. The relationship though wrong, is easily believable, and all of the acting in this movie really is strong. There was nothing other than the creepy scenes that no person of responsibility for another in this day and age should ever let themselves end up in that I did not Enjoy, and I really do recommend this movie all day. My only warning is that parents really might want to decide when this movie is OK for kids to see as there are strong views about sex that should not be up to the movies to teach them. Otherwise for anyone past the point of saving then this movie is a really good, well acted piece that resolves nicely, and does not feel the need to punish everyone.
At Phoenix Progressive School, where everyone tries to outdo each other with creative self-expression, 16-year-old Molly Maxwell (Lola Tash) would rather be invisible than risk revealing herself as completely ordinary. When her young, handsome, disillusioned English teacher (Charlie Carrick) enters the picture and allows her to just be herself, Molly is suddenly able to flourish. As their student-teacher bond becomes more intimate, she begins putting herself on the line in unexpected ways while pursuing what she wants. But with each awkward, beautiful step towards an impossible romance, Molly risks alienating everyone she loves.
