‘A Teacher’ Teaser Trailer Tantalizes Without Words

A Teacher

The prevalent theme of this year’s Sundance Film Festival centered on characters engaging in highly inappropriate sexual relationships, with a number of films chronicling romances (of a sort) that blossomed between people who had some serious power inequality (basically, there were just a lot of teachers getting it on with their students), with Hannah Fidell‘s quietly haunting A Teacher absolutely blowing up the mini-genre. The film was a favorite of mine at the fest, mainly due to star Lindsay Budge’s remarkable performance as the teacher in question, one which will soon be available for more moviegoers to enjoy (well, you know, as much as you can enjoy an achingly uncomfortable film), thanks to Oscilloscope Laboratories.

The Playlist has just rolled out an exclusive teaser trailer for the film, one that does quite a bit with very little, as the minute or so of footage on display comes without dialogue and relies heavily on some s-e-x-y imagery. But, be warned, A Teacher isn’t just sexy, it’s seriously awkward (in the best possible way). Get a glimpse of the forbidden passion of A Teacher after the break. Scandal!

A Teacher will be released later this year.
