Maggie Gyllenhaal is quietly chilling in this story of a kindergarten teacher who becomes obsessed when one of her students starts to display a gift for poetry. At first it seems she is trying to nurture his talent, but soon it becomes apparent she wants to take credit for this child prodigy.
Sara Colangelo’s second film after her debut Little Accidents is a powerful take on frustrated ambition and trying to find fulfilment through another’s talent.
