A calculating high school student attempts to seduce his somewhat older swimming instructor in this tense sexual drama.

Reasons to Buy

  1. Absent is the sophomore effort from Marco Berger - the same (very gifted) filmmaker behind the acclaimed 2009 hit Plan B.

.....Latest Work is so very much the opposite (well, perhaps there's a "tinge" of romantic love). Instead, we're being given: A Crush-love...almost a Stalkerish-love.


In a comparison, "Absent" is the more... Read More
