Geoffrey Dodds (Robert Nolan) starts the day on a happy note, the sun is shining, it's warm, and he has a classroom full of students he can mold so they can become anything they want to be ... but who is he kidding? These kids probably won't amount to anything of importance, ever, and furthermore, they really couldn't care less about him. Whatever he teaches them is a waste of breath, and he knows it. Of course this frustrates him, and his frustration is manifested in a voice that speaks to him, a voice that amplifies his self-hatred and turns it into hatred against others, not only his students but also his colleagues, and that actually gives him an undeserved feeling of superiority.

There is one bright spot in Geoffrey Dodds' life every day: Lillian (Samantha Nemeth). Lillian is one of Dodds' students, but he has also fallen in love with her. He writes her loveletters every day and has made plans on how to get away from all of this with her, to somewhere where noone would know them, would know and take exception to the fact that they are teacher and student, plans to start a new life with Lillian. Of course, Dodds has given none of his loveletters to Lillian, she doesn't know about his feelings, and probably she doesn't even see him as a man, just a teacher. Also, she has gotten awfully friendly with her classmate (Kyle Martellacci) of late, much to Dodds' dismay.

His unrequitted love has pushed Dodds over the edge a little, he has felt suicidal tendencies of late, and these days carries a gun in his briefcase, which he intends to use on his students - but maybe not today ...


Basically, this film is a showcase for its lead Robert Nolan, who portrays his ticking timebomb character to perfection, is really able to embody the torments Dodds goes through (or thinks he goes through). He is of course greatly supported by a subtle directorial effort that doesn't go for cheap effects to draw the attention away from him but has a welcome old-fashioned (in the best sense of the word) flair to it, and a script that carefully builds up tension and intensity without overdoing it and that's positively creepy.

Absolutely recommended!
