Movie Trailer: A TEACHER


Just as students head back to school this fall, Hannah Fidell’s controversial and salacious film “A TEACHER” opens theatrically and on video-on-demand September 6th

“Hard to look away from this head-on exploration of a woman escaping the demands of adult life by surrendering to inappropriate passion.”

– David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter


“A taut, closely-observed psychological tale.”

– Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times



Part psychological thriller and part provocative character study, A TEACHER explores the unraveling of a young high school teacher, Diana (Lindsay Burdge), after she begins an affair with one of her teenage students, Eric (Will Brittain). What starts as a seemingly innocent fling becomes increasingly complex as the beautiful and confident Diana gets fully consumed by her emotions, crossing boundaries and acting out in progressively startling ways. Lindsay Burdge delivers a deeply compelling and seamlessly naturalistic performance that brings us into the mind of an adult driven to taboo against her better judgment.

A TEACHER made its world premiere at The Sundance Film Festival in 2013 and will be released theatrically and on-demand this September by Oscilloscope Laboratories.
