The Kindergarten Teacher (12A)
Dir: Sara Colangelo
Cast: Maggie Gyllenhaal, Gael García Bernal, Ato Blankson-Wood
US, 2018, 97 mins
A thought-provoking and fascinating drama following a teacher with frustrated artistic aspirations who becomes obsessed with her five year old student thinking that he is a poetic genius, crossing the line of acceptable professional behaviour. Maggie Gyllenhaal gives one of the best performances of her career in this sensitive remake of Nadiv Lapid’s 2015 Hebrew-language film of the same title.
