All-American Girl: The Mary Kay Letourneau Story

USA Cable Networks

All-American Girl is the true story of Mary Kay Letourneau, a 34-year-old married school teacher who had a sexual relationship with her 13 year old student. The “intelligently understated script” presents its controversial subject matter in a way that is both straightforward and compulsively watchable (generating block-buster ratings when it premiered).

Directed by Lloyd Kramer

"Amazingly enough, writer Julie Hebert and director Lloyd Kramer have taken this tawdry story and turned it into a fascinating tale of criminal selfishness and romantic self-delusion"
