Product Description

Rising star Erin Kelly (Waking Madison) is Annabelle, a precocious Senator's daughter who falls for her Catholic school teacher, Simone (Diane Gaidry, The Dogwalker).

After Simone is assigned to control the rebellious student, she instead finds herself drawn into Annabelle's world. As their attraction builds, the two women must cope with the reactions of those around them. Writer-Director Katherine Brooks unveils this smoldering tale of forbidden love with intelligence, wit and sensitivity.

A lot of taboos are broken in Loving Annabelle, even if the film itself remains remarkably tasteful--even demure. The central characters are two women, a teacher and her student, and the setting is an all-girls school (shades of Lost and Delirious). Annabelle (the smoldering Erin Kelly), a senior, is a rebellious rocker chick--the Beverly Hills version that is, i.e. highlighted hair, black eyeliner, and nose ring. Her senatorial mother ships her off to boarding school to shape up. Annabelle's hard-partying ways are starting to become an embarrassment. Miss Simone Bradley (the sympathetic Diane Gaidry) is a popular poetry teacher. She's a Catholic. Annabelle is not. Simone has a boyfriend, Annabelle is gay. Looks can be deceiving, however, and there's more to both than meets the eye. For one, Simone's relationship is not as secure as it appears. For another, Annabelle's ardor is so relentless it threatens to sway sympathy against her. She seems to have no regard for the damage an affair would inflict on her teacher's career. Nonetheless, Simone is not entirely resistant to her charms. Inspired by 1931's Mädchen in Uniform, writer/director Katherine Brooks preserves the forbidden relationship at the heart of the Weimar-era classic, but drops the political subtext. Consequently, she doesn't take on more than she can handle, but Loving Annabelle still feels a little slight. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

5.0 out of 5 stars You don't realize its so great until it's over October 12, 2006
By Fredo
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie is fantastic. You don't really realize how great it is until after its over though. It is a great story. A Catholic Boarding School teacher falls in love with her female student. That's right, it is about lesbians and homosexuality. However, if you are just looking for "lesbian action" don't waste your time with this, its not a sex movie. If on the other hand, you are mature enough to handle such a plot, you'll love it. So after an hour of the student pursuing the teacher and the teacher being wary and afraid to be with her.....well I can't tell you how it ends. What I will say, though, is why it is so great. It does not openly debate, discuss, or point out anything about homosexuality being right, wrong, good, or evil. What it instead does is tell a wonderful tale of romantic, yet forbidden pursuit, and no matter what your stance is on homosexuality in general, you cannot help but hope for a happy ending, and get wrapped up in this love drama. After the movie is over, you think of how bittersweet the story is and poor this and at least that and then it hits you - You have been focusing on love, passion, heartache, and beauty....but NOT about Straight or Gay relationships. That's the beauty of this film. It captures you into a world of pure love drama and you forget that it is about a controversial subject at all. Regardless of your stance in this controversy, all you can focus on while watching is a love story between two human beings. Watch it, you'll love it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful study of "forbidden" teacher/student love February 4, 2007
This new 'hottest movie around' tells a poignant story full of taboo, passion, and hidden lives brimming at the surfaces of these women as they fall deeper into each others worlds. You're carried along watching Simone's more mature "self" struggle to resist the younger, beautiful, and obviously very enlightened, student. Rebellious Annabelle is young and doesn't demonstrate any real concept of consequence, and is focused on acting on her feelings and thoughts. This story is tender, real, controversial and compelling. The film quality is excellent, even if the acting isn't exactly top notch. Stil, the women and settings are beautiful! YES, there is seduction, obviously, and man is it wonderful! The women are just lovely, both actresses are completely sexy and intriguing. I didn't like the ending, but it absolutely dismantles the "double standard" question and says that it isn't OK to seduce students! (but you can also click the 'alternate ending' option in the bonus section to get a happier ending) I loved the way Simone's past was revealed bit by bit along the way; her struggle with heartache and vulnerability - but while possessing intellect and strength at the same time - was so intriguing. The evolving and maturing Annabelle was refreshing, but so was her youthful tenacity in holding on to her own set of values. The way they ultimately let the barrier between them melt away, and find themselves relating as women, unfolds in the "beach house" scene. Very touching. I take away 1 star for not developing this as much as it could have been, therefore, ending it in one hour. The love scene between the women is smokin' hot!

3.0 out of 5 stars Watchable, but I've seen better. January 18, 2007
By H
I must admit, when it comes to Lesbian Films, most suck. This one didn't, but it wasn't as good as it could have been. The acting seemed a bit stiff to me and there was a lack of emotion and tension. Also the topic was moralisticly questionable. I know these relationships occur, but should they? Should a 30 something year old woman accept the advances of a 16 year old girl? As far as endings go, this one was different and not how people expect 'love stories' to end, but totally appropriate considering the topic and the people involved. If you want to see a nice Lesbian love story with a happy ending, lots of tension and emotion, see 'When Night is Falling'.

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing October 8, 2007
In an industry lacking movies centered around lesbian or gay characters, there is Loving Annabelle. For the longest time my favorite movie for this ganre has been Debs due to the cutness and the fact there is not much else out there. However, after watching this movie I now have not only a new favorite movie for this genre but I new favorite for my top five all time list. What I found in this movie that was so moving was that I continuously forgot about it being about two women but it become a story about two people in love without being able to get togehter. Anyone, hetero or homo, could watch this movie and feel for it. It's one of the first times in my life in which I was voting for the teacher/student relationship to survive. Thank god for alternative ending lol.

The chemistry between the two actresses was outstanding and the writing was just brilliant. Personally I can not wait to get home from work and go watch it over and over again. It makes waiting for the rest of season three of south of nowhere much more bareable. Get it and show it to your friends because movies like this should not be missed out on.
