Precocious 13-year-old Emerson Thorsen has been home-schooled all his life by his hippie parents. When they begin to worry that his upbringing may be too unbalanced, they enroll him in the nearby town’s junior high school. A few violent teenage conflicts arise for Emerson, but his biggest preoccupation is his newfound infatuation for his English teacher, Mr. Grant.

The ultimate teacher-crush movie is Mädchen in Uniform (1931, banned by the Nazis), closely followed by La robe du soir. Paradise: Hope and Claire's Knee are both excellent treatments of minor variations on the theme in which the object of affection is not a teacher but close enough. This isn't as good as those, but it's nicely done, with good acting from Aaron Webber and some original and insightful moments.
