A nice disturbing twist to the standard student/teacher affair story. Judi Dench is great as usual. The only downside is that I didn’t find the student character entirely believable. Otherwise it’s done well. That’s about all I can say without spoiling it.

he kills her. but not before humping her.
did i spoil it?
nope. I said, there’s a twist on the usual story.
i read the book, i remember enjoying the style of the author but really disliking almost every single one of the main characters in the end. I don’t remember their being some crazy twist… other than the teacher falling in love with the student and moving in with the narrator, finding her memoirs and getting mad.. does somebody get killed in the end of the movie?!
I wouldn’t say it’s a movie about a murder, but definitely about people doing unlikable things.
i’m glad you enjoyed this movie. i had a hard time finding anything redeeming in it.
I think I enjoyed it more for its creepyness.
and judy dench is definitely good at the creepy.
