The Kindergarten Teacher

The Kindergarten Teacher

Maggie Gyllenhaal portrays the eponymous teacher as quiet and worryingly staid, dispassionately navigating a luckless career until one of her students presents and immense gift. A sensitive portrait grows out of an obsession, the ethical implications of a fixation which seems kind-hearted but becomes increasingly unmanageable. A highly praised adaptation of an Israeli film by the same name.
