Genre: Drama. Dir: Sara Colangelo. Country: USA.
The story of a teacher who walks a fine line between nurturing and obsession. Maggie Gyllenhaal stars as Lisa Spinelli, a kindergarten teacher who discovers a prodigal poet in five-year-old Jimmy – and, through his work, a way of impressing her own weekly writing class. Passing off the poems as her own, Lisa finds herself tumbling down a questionable path of lies and obsession, losing sight of herself and what’s appropriate. A hugely compelling drama-thriller also starring Gael García Bernal.
