The Kindergarten Teacher



The Kindergarten Teacher


Saturday 25 January 8.30pm Channel 039

Stuck in an unsatisfying marriage, 40-year-old Lisa Spinelli’s job as a kindergarten teacher, is equally unrewarding. One day everything changes when Lisa discovers that Jimmy, a five-year-old boy in her class, may be a gifted poet and sees him as a ticket out of her mundane life. When Lisa presents some of Jimmy’s work at her poetry class as her own work, receiving praise from her teacher, her desire to mentor the child genius grows. As fascination turns into obsession, Lisa spirals downward on a dangerous and desperate path to channel her unfulfilled creative dreams into the protégée. Starring Maggie Gyllenhaal, Gael Garcia Bernal & Ato Blankson-Wood.
