The Kindergarten Teacher

7 yrs 96 minutes 2018 6.8

Lisa lives a rather boring and ordinary life with her husband and her teenage children, she works as a preschool teacher at a preschool in New York. Life is just passing by, until one day when she hears how 5-year-old Jimmy creates beautiful poetry. This leads to a series of events where Lisa struggles to lift Jimmy's talent, but does she really do right, or does her curiosity grow too fast toward an obsession? Jens Peterson writes in Aftonbladet; “Lisa's thirst for culture initially feels like a healthy attitude but becomes more and more unhealthy. The intrigue takes unexpected paths and turns towards a thriller instead.” As Lisa, we see the acclaimed actress Maggie Gyllenhaal. The film was nominated for several awards in the 2018 Sundance Film Festival.
