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.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
ok.so i watched it again.i don't know..i really admire judi's and cate's performances.but yes, i'm touchy about this uncomfortable gay subtext,i admit. now,i don't think that the film is homophobic,but ridiculously,it's dench's character who is homophobic(who's obviously a lesbian).
Notes on a scandal shows how manipulation can be used for self gain. The film is a dark twisted almost lovers tale. It's hard to distinguish which character is truly evil as they both have so much to win and lose. A fantastic film!
