Loving Annabelle: Good Film or Clit Tease?




For anyone that hasn't seen it, here's the tag line: "The controversial story of a highly accomplished Catholic school teacher, who falls in love with her student, Annabelle." Hot right? Well, yes, actually the whole concept is very hot and I'm sure many of you have done the whole "catholic school girl/catholic teacher" role play game (I'll be the first one to admit it). When I heard about the movie "Loving Annabelle" I was ecstatic, especially for the lesbian community, and admittedly got a little moist in the panties when I read about the plot line. I waited with baited breath for it to come out on DVD and obviously had it on my Netflix list for several weeks before the DVD was released. I wanted to see it, and I wanted to see it now!
When the movie arrived, I popped it into the DVD player and snuggled up to Lesberada for some hot lesbian movie action.



Overall, the movie was very enjoyable to watch; Diane Gaidry (Simone) and Erin Kelly (Annabelle) were both excellent choices for the roles they played, and the two women weren't too bad on the eyes either. I really appreciated the cinematography and learned that the movie was inspired by the 1931 German classic, MAEDCHEN IN UNIFORM, which is pretty awesome. From the getco, I thought Annabelle was smokin' hot and couldn't really understand her attraction to Simone who was, to put nicely, kind of boring with her rural catholic lifestyle. Annabelle though, god bless her, played amazingly into the whole good-girl-gone-bad Catholic school girl, enough to make me want to go back to Catholic school and get me a piece of that education.



After the movie started to heat up a bit, I retracted my initial distaste for Simone and she began to grow on me. One thing I have to applaud is the directors outstanding ability to create an uncomfortable amount of sexual tension between the two women. I'm talking more sexual tension than there is between me and Sandra Bullock. It got to the point where I was starting to sweat and feel a little funny and wanted to jump up from the couch and yell "JUST FUCK, ALREADY!". The two women had a great on-screen chemistry, which obviously attributes to the success of the movie, but there's only so long you can watch two people interact in a platonic manner when it is obvious that they want to rip each other's clothes off (and you want to rip your clit off).



In essence, the movie was very good with a strong plot and talented actresses, but I feel as though the directors dragged the sexual tension a bit too far making it almost (but not quite) a glorified clit tease. I was overly thrilled with the ending (which I won't give away here), but will say that too many lesbian movies end with me needed a double dose of anti-depressants. As cheesy and cliche it might sound, I'm all for the happily ever after movies, so Loving Annabelle left me with a dry taste in my mouth and me wanting more. Will there be a sequel? Let's hope so. I'm thinking next time there should be a little less talk and a little more action. I say Fucking Annabelle: When Catholic School Girls Graduate. Who's with me???

See the trailer, buy the DVD!!

There is nothing hotter in reality or in the movies than sexual tension. bonus on that.

I say fat juicy clit tease (with a hot though truncated consummation scene---why can't movies show how hard a woman comes with a woman she really loves?) AND excellent movie screaming for a sequel where she proves she will "weather the storm" with her beloved(ah, I'm such a romantic). I just finished seeing it and... uh... calming myself down. I am one consistently unmoved by porn and yet the quality of this movie transported me into the realm of real life experience (love that sexual tension!) in ways most unanticipated. Kudos to the makers of this piece of art! I agree that the ending felt... unfinished for me. Rewriting it?... brilliant! That ought to keep me until the sequel comes... Pantherwoman
