In spite of the premise that reads more like a "Penthouse" letter, Brooks' controversial romance is much more heart felt and complex in examining both of its characters and their intentions toward one another...

If you're looking for a bare-bones story about girl-on-woman love that goes precisely where you're expecting it to go, you could do worse.

Audience Reviews for Loving Annabelle


If you like movies that feature relationships, Loving Annabelle fits the bill. Of course the problem is that no matter how much anyone is in love, it is just not possible to act on your feelings if you are the teacher, and the object of your affections is your student. Many of the other reviews complain about the 'abrupt' ending, but it suits the movie.

This is the story of a young lady who was sent to a private catholic school by her mother, who's a Senator. There she feels out of place, but finds comfort with her teacher, Simone. Their intensity grows throughout the school year to where one night everything changes.

It was a decent love story to watch, but didn't bring much for me. I also didn't really like the ending....it ended so abruptly.

Not that good. Can't understand how this is rating quite highly on here. The acting and story is like a bad porn film, and the topic is a bit icky. I have no problem at all watching a movie aimed at, or featuring gay people, but it's a bit off when one is a teen girl and one's an older teacher. Yes, the teacher is reasonably sympathetic, and watching the making-of doco clarified what the director was trying to acheive, but it just does not work. Erin Kelly is just hard faced and comes across like a little trouble maker, do not buy her as being genuine in her feelings at all, even though she is clearly meant to be, and ditto to the other class mates, not even remotely convincing. Diane Gaidry comes out of it with a bit of dignity, but it's not saying much.
There are much better movies out there if you're a fan of this genre, :"But I'm a cheerleader", "All over me", to name just a few...
