With a 92% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, The Kindergarten Teacher is proving to be a huge hit among critics and viewers alike. The film stars Maggie Gyllenhaal in what has been descried as one of the best performances of her career. Roll on the Oscars!
The movie, which is scheduled to be released on October 12 2018, by Netflix, follows a teacher who discovers a gifted student in her Kindergarten class. The problem is that no one else seems that interested so Lisa (Gyllenhaal) takes it upon herself to nurture his talent. Insisting he is the next mozart, she takes it upon herself to bring him to museums and to present his work at a poetry reading. And while that all sounds terribly bland, the movie does turn because while she sees herself as the hero, taking this child under her wing, her actions go way too far. What could be a just a nice movie about a caring teacher becomes more of a suspenseful thriller that will grip audiences.
