Watch blame 2017 full movie online. A drama teacher’s taboo relationship with an unstable student strikes a nerve in her jealous classmate, sparking a vengeful chain of events within their suburban high school that draws parallels to ‘The Crucible’.
Shephard stars as Abigail, a quiet, darkly pretty 11th grader who returns to school after a long absence. The screenplay (by Shephard and her mother, Laurie) is a bit coy about the exact circumstances surrounding Abigail’s time off, but it’s clear from her classmates’ snide remarks — several refer to her as “Sybil” — that she suffered some sort of mental breakdown.
Particularly cruel to Abigail is vampish popular girl Melissa (Nadia Alexander), a nightmarish cheerleader/punk-princess hybrid with dyed red hair and a perma-scowl. Melissa’s main henchwoman is milder-mannered Sophie (the terrific Sarah Mezzanotte), a leggy blonde whose childhood BFF, down-to-earth Ellie (Tessa Albertson, also excellent), wants nothing to do with Melissa.
In the normative world of the all-American suburban high school, Abigail’s psychiatric history makes her an easy target for bullies like Melissa and hot jock Eric (Luke Slattery) — as does the fact that she’s an eccentric, the kind of intense drama nerd who walks with a limp for days prior to performing a scene as Laura Wingfield from The Glass Menagerie in theater class.
