Will Brittain

A Teacher

It’s hard being a teenager these days. There’s pressure that never existed before to excel in school, have a well-rounded social and extracurricular life and just have a general ability to get your life together all before you turn 18. Now add hormones to the mix and it’s all shot to hell. The first trailer for Hannah Fidell’s A Teacher seems to focus on what happens when one of those hormonal teens crosses paths with an teacher who hasn’t quite gotten a grasp on the boundaries you need to be able to set in adulthood. High school teacher Diana (up-and-comer Lindsay Burdge) is in the middle of an affair with one of her students (Will Brittain) and all is well until she decides to call the whole thing off. But she can’t deny her attraction to her young student, and the taboo nature of their fling causes her to mentally unravel. Juicy. I would make a comparison to 2009’s An Education, another film about an inappropriate romance between a teen and an adult, except I remembered that Peter Sarsgaard’s character didn’t have any feelings. Check out the newest trailer for A Teacher after the break.
