It will be fascinating to see how "Before The Dawn" is received by disparate film consumers -- will they, on the mere simplicity of principle, reject Lila's emotional and physical engagement of her student as deviant and immoral, and potentially straight-up illegal (we're shrewdly never provided with Jason's age)?

The moral questions that the leading characters have to confront, is so engaging.

An intense and entertaining tale of a forbidden love between a teacher and her student.

The plot was far too complicated and at times seemed unrealistic - brother in jail, drug dealing (with the most cliche looking/talking gang ever).

Kendy) agrees to help him by tutoring him after school but things start to change when she finds herself falling for his youthful charm, which later turns into an intense feeling of excitement and happiness when they both end up sparking the fire.

An entertaining film.

That and the fact that the actors are very intense!
