Notes on a Scandal
A veteran high school teacher befriends a younger art teacher, who is having an affair with one of her 15-year-old students. However, her intentions with this new "friend" also go well beyond platonic friendship.
Repressed teacher Barbara becomes friends with her new colleague Sheba. But learning Sheba's secrets gives Barbara a dangerous feeling of power.
Dench’s acting, I thought she was a little too one-dimensional in this role. But given her choice, she executed the role with the usual Dench precision.
This is a twisted love triangle story with very real characters. If you’re the kind that picks up the dirt rags in the checkout line at the supermarket, you’ll probably love the story. I gave it a 7 on my scale. It won’t blow you away, but you won’t feel like you’ve wasted your time either.
