Her third visit occurs after he has been denied tenure and is packing up to leave the school. There is some illogic in the circumstances the two characters become entwine within. I never knew dialogue held this power. By all means, if you have top actors as performers and a director who is familiar with the potential of the camera. For her, academic success is central to her vision of a better life. So everything is either ambiguous or figurative. Mainly, the exact things the two say are not what's key.
Carol Debra Eisenstadt is flunking his class, her work is inadequate but she feels entitled to special treatment because of her disadvantaged social situation and her many sacrifices to attend the school. This simply compounds his trouble. Susan, the victim of her own false expectations of how the university is to transform her existence, repeatedly mentions the struggle she had to endure in order to get into college. Anyhow, there's no way you believe for a second that she'd be flunking the guy's class, especially with the assiduous way she scribbles down in her notebook every little thing he says like Egghead from those Foghorn Leghorn cartoons. This forces John with a choice on how to handle the situation, and the results make up for a shattering ending to the movie.
Toward the end of her first visit the professor for unknown reasons switches from stern taskmaster into his paternal mode and seems to realize that he really should be doing his job better. You'll be able to pick the places where Bill Macy is saying non-words, pretentious words or jargons in his monologues - and notice where somebody is talking ambiguously, or not saying anything at all. I imagine it was Mamet's intention to do so, but the only big complaint I have with the film is Debra Eisenstadt who delivers one of the most unbearably annoying performances I've ever seen. Carol is a type of student I knew well. It has goaded her to build her entire life around being injured and being a victim. Maybe that utopian real estate is really swampland. There are essentially only two characters in the film, and their acting, under the circumstances of such deep intellectual subjects and roles the obsessed, overzealous student and the stand-his-ground-while-trying-to-help professor is very good.
He pursues ever more clever theories about life and learning. Synopsis When a student visits her professor to discuss how she failed his course, the discussion takes an awkward turn. At that point you realize that she is a nut case who has irresponsibly ruined his life, in part because of her resentment about her overall situation at the college and in part because of desire for power. I explain, the act in question can be seen as an assault or as kidnapping retaining Carol against her will but the act cannot be sexual; the last scene as well has a murderous attempt but not a sexual connotation and it is a reaction to a false accusation perjury. Or perhaps the comedic pretentiousness of Hal Hartley.
He is a nerdy college professor. I participated in several such groups and I quickly observed they care for neither equality nor justice; what they wanted was deference, authority, and often revenge. He lives in his ideas. It has goaded her to build her entire life around being injured and being a victim. The two spend a long time talking to each other, during which time John says a few things that can be taken the wrong way. I was very skeptical about Oleanna, and was really resistant to it - but was very surprised to find myself succumbing to it.
Its about words, talking and meaning. Her arguments used to define sexual assault takes away the intention of the act and substitutes it not even for the appearance of the act but in the perception of the victim. This is about a professor male and his student female. It's not just people spilling their interiors--it's a lot of talk, and so therefore a lot of thoughts in words. It is not really a feminist film as neither character is portrayed in a particularly flattering manner. The performances - well, Macy at least - are in an appropriately hyper-real tone to suit the hyper-real dialogue.

Macy's performance is not without its weak spots -- but in spite of those quibbles, is a compelling, intriguing film. After the night the two spent talking, John is slapped with a sexual harassment accusation by Carol. Mamet seems to be taking on political correctness, which is at its worst in academia. On top of that, she suffers from depression, which diminishes her cognitive abilities.
John, the pedantic professor, also sees Academia as the means to a comfortable, upper middle class existence with his new house, wife, and son. The tagline is right -- whatever side you choose, you're wrong. I saw this movie and was blown away by how different it was. It is not really a feminist film as neither character is portrayed in a particularly flattering manner. Please see this movie if you can. After more accusations from Carol, John's career as a teacher begins to fall apart.
