Don’t Believe the Hype
Annabelle is a very bad girl and she has the tight kilt, killer tube socks, and streaked hair to prove it. My how she can drag a smoke. Misunderstood by the world, she seeks solace and a few other things in her older teacher Simone. Poor Simone! Repressed, closeted, in a boring and passionless relationship with a clueless guy, Simone is in dire need of therapy…instead she hangs with Annabelle.
Lesbians and Catholic School?
Erin Kelly (Annabelle) & Diane Gaidry (Simone)www.lovingannabelle.com
Raise your hands. How many of you went to Catholic school? So the statistics are true! The film takes place at – you guessed it – a Catholic school, where Annabelle’s mother, a prominent Senator, ships her in a last attempt to cure her wild ways. It is the school Simone attended as a young student, where she fell madly in love with her roommate, got caught, and returned out of guilt and a promise to her aunt who witnessed them. Perhaps, Simone wanted to ensure that other, young, impressionable girls wouldn’t follow in her footsteps? Nah! It was the guilt - those Catholics, I tell you.
Teacher/Student No Nos
Some may call this forbidden love, others, sex with a minor. You decide. As a new parent and a former teacher, I conservatively lean towards the latter – call me a red state girl. My head screams, “Boundary issue, boundary issue!” Don’t lesbians have enough issues with boundaries or so my therapist and ex-girlfriends might argue?
Lesbian Fantasies? Your Homework
Ok, girls. It’s time for some new lesbian fantasies. The teacher/schoolgirl kilt thing is getting pretty old. This film had me practically yawning at the DVD cover – “One Student. One Teacher. One Secret.” Hmmm, I wonder what this film will be about? Your assignment – dare to make it new! No more forbidden love. No more lesbians rolling around in chocolate. No more lesbian triangles/rectangles/hexagonals. No more Ann Heche. Let’s get creative and wondrous and sinful and delicious and reflective about the movies we desire to make and see. Action!
My Rating: 2 stars – There is some degree of heat. Just some.
