When a handsome, charming teenager named Noah (Ryan Guzman) moves in next door, newly separated high-school teacher Claire Peterson (Jennifer Lopez) encourages his friendship and engages in a little bit of harmless (or so she thinks) flirtation. Although Noah spends much of the time hanging out with Claire's son, the teen's attraction to her is palpable. One night, Claire gives in to temptation and lets Noah seduce her, but when she tries to end the relationship, he turns violent.

Trivia

In California as of the 2013 filming date it was not illegal for a teacher to have sexual relations with a student that was over 18. A bill to make such activity a felony (AB-1861) had been filed in 2012. It failed to pass, so it was never signed into law. See more »

It's the average Jennifer Lopez movie
4 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

I think this movie was horrible. It's glorified inappropriate teacher- student relations. I figured this movie out before it even got to the drama. I think this movie was transparent and pretty much predictable in every imaginable way. I think I would pass on this movie. If you've ever seen Enough then you've seen this movie. I wish there was more creativity in this story and less predictability. I think J.Lo is typecast in horrible horrible movies. I really think the author just kind of gave up and started stealing movie and plot ideas from other horrible movies. And this is basically your average Jennifer Lopez movie. She's playing a "smart" victim. I wish there was one positive thing to say about this movie but there isn't.
