Emotionally complex drama about a gifted high school student (Agnes Bruckner) who becomes involved in an increasingly problematic relationship with her poetry teacher (David Strathairn). Directed by Karen Moncrieff, the textured narrative, echoing Nabokov's "Lolita" and buttressed by strong performances, explores people's hunger for authentic love and its unavoidable obstruction by the frailties of human nature. A sexual encounter and recurring rough language and vulgarities. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-IV -- adults, with reservations. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
