The Kindergarten Teacher (12A)

F Rated Film
Friday 5th April 2019 - Thursday 11th April 2019

Dir. Sara Colangelo, US, 2018, 96mins.
Cast. Maggie Gyllenhall, Gael Garcia Bernal, Michael Chernus.

Caring, patient Staten Island kindergarten teacher Lisa Spinelli spends her days teaching and her evenings attending poetry classes in Manhattan. When she inadvertently discovers her five-year-old student, Jimmy is gifted, she becomes determined to nurture his talent before his family destroy it. Both a nuanced trip into the psyche of a disillusioned woman and a remarkably tense thriller, the film is a fantastically compelling moral drama; an unpredictable, daring film that ripples with psychological depth.

We are also hosting a Reclaim the Frame screening of The Kindergarten Teacher on Tuesday 9 April, followed by a talk and poetry workshop. Click here for more information.
