MOLLY MAXWELL (2013): A Canadian Teen Initiates Oral Sex on High School Teacher

Molly Maxwell (2013) is yet another film about a romance between a high school student and her English teacher, but this time they're Canadian!

Here's IMDb's summary:
At Phoenix Progressive School, where everyone tries to outdo each other with creative self-expression, 16-year-old Molly Maxwell (Lola Tash) would rather be invisible than risk revealing herself as completely ordinary. When her young [26-year-old], handsome, disillusioned English teacher (Charlie Carrick) enters the picture and allows her to just be herself, Molly is suddenly able to flourish. As their student-teacher bond becomes more intimate, she begins putting herself on the line in unexpected ways while pursuing what she wants. But with each awkward, beautiful step towards an impossible romance, Molly risks alienating everyone she loves.
In the film, Molly aggressively initiates a romantic affair with Ben - the new member of the high school English department. 

Molly desperately wants to lose her virginity to her English teacher - so much so, that she, literally, rips her clothes off on several occasions, but Ben but stops short of sex, because he feels that it's "just wrong"; however, as a compromise, Ben allows Molly to initiate oral sex. 

Frustrated, Ben said to Molly, "200 years ago no one would have any problem if I took you as my child bride." But Ben is off by about 100 years. For instance, in 1981, 29-year-old Charlie Chaplin married 16-teen-year-old Mildred Harris and, per My Life with Chaplin, he: “[...] drew gasps and condemnations only from a small section of the public.”

Teen Vogue and Tavi Gevinson would be proud of Molly's mom, who gifted Molly a copy of Confidence Through Healthy Teen Sexuality and a (large) waterproof variable speed pink vibrator. (BTW, Teen Vogue recommends the magic wand for teens.) 

Lastly, Molly was spotted reading Lolita. Was Molly reading Nabokov's masterpiece for tips? Did Molly opine, like novelist Robertson Davies, that Lolita is: “[...] not [about] the corruption of an innocent child by a cunning adult, but [about] the exploitation of a weak adult by a corrupt child.”
