Genres: Based on a True Story, Old-Young Relationships, Lesbian, Teen

Plot – Spoilers:
The tagline to the film goes, “One woman’s mistake is another’s opportunity”. And while it does focus a lot on this, the mistake is also central here.

Sheba joins school as the new art teacher and immediately catches the attention of Barbara, who is a few years from retirement. Barbara carries herself cold and stern as if in possession of battle-hardened loins, with not much time for her colleagues or students.

But Sheba is different. Sheba’s charm and flippant attitude to life and material things pisses Barbara off, and yet attracts her, because it reflects the ease with which things have been accessible to Sheba all her life. Barbara is thrilled to be invited as a friend to Sheba’s home and family, but she also can’t wait for the pristine porcelain image to shatter. And it soon happens when she spies on Sheba getting naked and dirty with a 15-year-old student.

Notes on a Scandal was adapted from a novel that was in turn based on the case of American teacher, Mary Kay Letourneau, who had a sexual relationship with her 12-year-old student, before marrying him after her jailtime was done.

Trivia:
It turns out, this is the 700th film on here.

I was a student-teacher at a high school, and I had sex with a minor. Unlike this film, I wasn’t married and I didn’t have children. Lots of scandals, but at least I’m hot and so I wasn’t jailed. I got a suspended sentence. Lots of interviews and media deals made me rich xD

This film made me look up the lust of my middle-school years online. She still looks great though she’s mother to a pair of rats. Will maybe accidentally bump into her at the mall or something and take it from there.

What a dirge.
Bill Nighy gives me the creeps with his ever present pedo-hair.
Trivia. The bridge at the begining was for many years a place the desperate ended it all. Eventually the council did something pro-active. Splattered corpses cause awful traffic jams. The bridge spans both harringay and islington with the islington side having the bulk of the jumpers. I assume it is the middle-class-socialism that gets people down in the end. Or maybe they were thrown over for being insufferable.

Oh geeze… school’s out and all the edgy like ass-fucks are here to annoy.

Maybe, with a little luck, half of them will splatter their deformed brains with Daddy’s pew-pew when they realize the world in fact does not revolve around their little snowflakes asses. Fuckin’ retarded malcontents.

This wasn’t unsettling enough. Not to shit all over the molestation of boys by older women but I feel like for me to have any empathy or remorse that perhaps she should have been showed abusing him maybe a scene with her tying him down until he started to eventually acquiesce boys tend to get cool points for stuff like this especially in school (hums Stacy’s mom) lol 😇
