The Kindergarten Teacher (12A)
US | 2018 | 96' | 12A | Sara Colangelo | Audio-Described
Teacher Lisa Spinelli spends her days teaching a class of precocious youngsters and her evenings attending poetry classes; while navigating a marriage devoid of chemistry and her own disinterested children at home. When she discovers that her five-year-old pupil, Jimmy shows promise and may be a gifted prodigy, she becomes determined to nurture his talent, but her desire to do so sets her on a dangerous and desperate path. Both a nuanced trip into the psyche of a disillusioned woman and a remarkably tense thriller, this is a compelling and unpredictable moral drama with an amazing central performance by Maggie Gyllenhaal.
