Caroline (Kat Dennings) is the new kid in a small town school. She is much more experienced and just plain smarter than the rural kids she’s in school with, so on a lark, she decides to seduce her English Teacher (Josh Lucas). As time passes, Caroline grows weary of the older guy and wants to spend more time with guys her own age, but Mr. Anderson is not having it. He is trying hard to keep her with him now that he’s in love with her. This is a humorous, but dark romantic drama and a coming of age story.

This is really, despite the dark side and the serial killings, death, and such, it’s really a story of a little girl who thinks she’s much more grown up than she really is. Everyone seems to be looking for something, and what they think they want, is not what they really need. Kat Dennings is really pretty good in this film, and plays it pretty well. She has a lot of backup as well. It’s not a wonderful movie, and it is an indie film, so it’s probably not everyone’s cup of tea, but it is definitely not terrible either. Many other critics did not like it, but just as many love it, so it’s hard to tell. I thought it was worth the time watching, and if you’re up to an indie romantic dark comedy, it will serve just fine.
