A kindergarten teacher in New York becomes obsessed with one of her students whom she believes is a child prodigy.
Maggie Gyllenhaal stars as Lisa Spinelli, a kindergarten teacher and poet fed up with her career, her oblivious husband and teenage kids who largely ignore her. When she discovers that a five-year-old in her class may be a poetic prodigy, Lisa becomes fascinated and tries to protect him from neglectful parents. She soon finds herself risking her career and family to nurture his talent.

“It’s hard not to think “WTF?!” in this story of a teacher who discovers a child prodigy and becomes obsessed. But Gyllenhaal is a sorceress of an actress worthy of following through the film’s twisty paths of light and dark.” – Rolling Stone
“Gyllenhaal – who is never out of our sight – somehow makes us all her accomplices, imprisoning our sympathies even when Lisa’s inappropriate behaviour escalates to inexcusable.” – The New York Times
THE KINDERGARTEN TEACHER is rated 12A. Visit the BBFC website for full details (may include plot spoilers).
