The Kindergarten Teacher

Still from The Kindergarten Teacher, Sarah Colangelo, 2018

Maggie Gyllenhaal stars as Lisa Spinelli, a kindergarten teacher and poet fed up with her career, her oblivious husband and teenage kids who largely ignore her.

When she discovers that a five-year-old in her class may be a poetic prodigy, Lisa becomes fascinated and tries to protect him from neglectful parents. She soon finds herself risking her career and family to nurture his talent.

“The Kindergarten Teacher is probably the only movie about poetry with an ending as tense as any thriller” – The Guardian

**The Thursday 2 May screening of The Kindergarten Teacher will be open captioned for accessibility**
