The intelligent Annabelle starts in an elite Catholic girls' boarding high school after being expelled from the previous 2 schools. She's open about being lesbian. She's attracted to her teacher, Simone.
An uptight and conservative woman, working on tenure as a literacy professor at a large urban university, finds herself strangely attracted to a free-spirited, liberal woman who works at a local carnival that comes to town.
Annabelle is the wise-beyond-her-years newcomer to an exclusive Catholic girls school. Having been expelled from her first two schools she's bound to stir some trouble. Sparks fly between her and her teacher, Simone Bradley. Annabelle pursues Simone relentlessly until Simone must make a choice between following her heart and doing what's right.Written by

When Annabelle goes to Simone's room after the day at the beach, in the first shot of Simone staring at the ceiling the bedside clock is clearly reading 11:29. The scene cuts back to Annabelle starting to knock on the door then hesitating and leaving. The next shot, again of Simone, shows the clock reading 11:24, a jump backward in time. See more »

Loving Annabelle is a beautiful and heartfelt picture about two people in love.
Its hard to watch "Loving Annabelle" and not feel its emotional and heart-wrenching qualities. Diane Gaidry and Erin Kelly are extremely convincing as "Simone" and "Annabelle". Their love is pure and extremely delicate for it holds so much more than most people care to notice. Its more than a "teacher-student love affair", or a "lesbian love affair". Annabelle and Simone feel love's agonizing pull and love's agonizing defeat with so much emotion and understanding. Erin and Diane played their parts beautifully and it is evident from watching their chemistry on screen as well as off. A job well done to both of them.
