He goes in Diana's car, where they have sex. That night he arrives at Diana's house. She verbalizes that what they are doing is wrong though seems to find it funny. She had stood, hands clasped in front of her, swaying slightly and breathing deeply as the jury foreman returned the verdicts. Plot[ edit ] The film starts with Diana Watts Lindsay Burdge jogging, and driving to school, where she teaches English, to a class full of students. She does not say who she is. Fidell treats Diana with compassion, thus avoiding what could have been troublesome tropes. Lindsay Burdge delivers a deeply compelling and seamlessly naturalistic performance that brings us into the mind of an adult driven to taboo against her better judgment. A single allegation of having sex with a child, when the complainant was aged 15, was withdrawn by the prosecution during the trial and the judge instructed the jury to return a not guilty verdict on that charge, after the boy gave evidence which suggested he was 16, not 15, when he first had sexual contact with Ms Lowe. As the twins' reunion reinvigorates them, they realize the key to fixing their lives may just lie in repairing their relationship. Diana becomes jealous of Eric when she finds out he has a date to the Sadie Hawkins dance which she will be chaperoning. Equal parts dizzying and devastating, the controversial relationship at the center of the film is a catalyst with which Eyre explores his themes of dangerous guilt and obsession. Diana and Eric talk once class ends, they then kiss, Watts becomes nervous that someone will catch them, she is then seen being very happy. She tells him, she is the happiest she has been in a long time. They begin having sex. Eric tells her to leave and she does so.
