Diana is a young and attractive teacher at a Texas high school, whose life slowly starts spiralling out of control when she enters a forbidden relationship with one of her students. The increasing strain that her obsession with young Eric puts on her mental state is expertly mirrored by the film's controlled editing and inspired use of music and lighting. Topped off by a fascinating performance by Lindsay Burdge, A TEACHER provides an interesting and frightening character study, with the traits of the psychological thriller.
