The Kindergarten Teacher (15)

March 7th 8:00 pm

 

BORDERLINES FILM FESTIVAL PREVIEW

Director: Sara Colangelo

Starring: Maggie Gyllenhaal, Parker Sevak, Gael García Bernal

US, 2018

Caring, patient Staten Island kindergarten teacher Lisa Spinelli spends her days teaching a class of precocious youngsters and her evenings attending a poetry course in Manhattan. Her marriage lacks chemistry and her own children are disengaged. When she inadvertently discovers her five-year-old student, Jimmy, is a gifted prodigy, she is determined to nurture his talent before his dismissive family destroys it – but this sets her on a dangerous path.

Adapted from the 2014 Israeli film of the same name, but switching from a masculine to a feminine point-of-view, this daring and tense thriller benefits immensely from Gyllenhaal’s intelligent acting, offering a nuanced insight into the psyche of a disillusioned woman.
