In "A Teacher," Burdge plays an attractive suburban Texas high school teacher engaged in a heated affair with a male student (Will Brittain). The subject matter alone attracted a lot of attention prior to the film's premiere, and following its unveiling Burdge emerged as one of the breakouts of the festival with a performance The Hollywood Reporter praised as "commandingly internalized."
The film next plays at the upcoming SXSW Film Festival (March 8-16) in the Festival Favorites category. Go HERE for the full lineup. Below, watch the trailer and view the poster:
