Plot: A kindergarten teacher in New York becomes obsessed with one of her students whom she believes is a child prodigy. Runtime: 96 min Release Date: 12 Oct 2018
This movie was pretty deep...at first watching it I thought it was pretty weird and def felt like the teacher went to far...but the last scene made it all make sense and solidified exactly why the teacher did what she did although it still wasn't right she seen something in the kid and was passionate about his talent. The last scene actually made me cry I'm so sensitive. I just wish she could have handled it differently and not have been so crazy
Maggie gyllenhaal is absolutely underrated (by yasmeenyehya)
What a movie , Maggie is an absolute star , she hold the whole movie up and made it with her acting even more interesting, this movie needed a good actor and if it was not her the movie would be an absolute rubbish, absolutely recommended!
"I have a poem" (by juanmuscle)
There was a time when a young tot named Mozart was primed and pandered to his every whim and need in his formative years today , this talent is squandered and wasted in portentous anti-climax, how can anyone who is not a fan of art not absolutely love the message here, it was well executed , well written , well acted and just came together beautifully. Yes I wish it was fleshed out a lil 'more , this would of made a great novella or mini-series , to get more poesy, to build the connection, to understand the backstory of the teacher to really bring everything together but we get the point <more>
, and its succinctness we are alive in its immensity, the pathos that would be are now writhing the abyss of bathos in our times... a supreme masterpiece.
Fantastic lead performance carries this disturbing, slow-burn thriller (by starboy_1701)
Maggie Gyllenhaal gives a stellar performance in The Kindergarten Teacher. This movie was a touch watch, but it was oh-so-worth it. It was very slow and methodical. I'm laughing at all the one-three star reviews because it's clearly people who were on their phone half the time or just haven't ever seen a movie which actually makes them feel something for a change. I don't normally post reviews because why should anyone care about my opinion, but I couldn't let this great movie get bogged down by fools who coooompletely missed the point the movie was trying to get across.
A little slow but worth it... (by michelle6620)
I watched this because I'm a big Maggie Gyllenhaal fan. I have never been disappointed in anything that she is in. When I saw her promoting this film I just had to see it. I will admit I was ready to give up on the movie after the first 20 minutes but I'm glad I didn't. It is a slow burn as you learn more about this Kindergarten teacher's private life and the nurturing relationship she has with her student. The teacher thinks she has a little Mozart on her hands and this child basically becomes an obsession of hers. This story really stirred a variety of emotions within me. <more>
Although my sons are adults now, I couldn't help thinking how I would have felt in a similar situation. This was very well written and Maggie Gyllenhaal's superb acting should earn her an Oscar nomination.
I've been waiting a while for this, and it did not disappoint . "The Kindergarten Teacher" is a perfect drama. Maggie Gyllenhaal delivers a career best, and delivers some truly powerful moments. I would expect a drama like this to come from A24, but this is actually done by Netflix. There are some genuinely sad and dramatic moments that work very well to craft a beautiful take on the boring life of a teacher. I highly recommend, its on Netflix.
an essay in psychotic obsession (by CineMuseFilms)
One of the holy grails of film is openness to varied interpretation. Despite its implied narrative unity, The Kindergarten Teacher 2017 is as open-ended as they come. What appears to be a predictable story of a bored 40-something teacher looking for self-actualisation slowly takes on dark themes of psycho-sexual obsession and acts of criminality.Deep in a marital and career rut, kindergarten teacher Lisa Spinelli Maggie Gyllenhaal craves more than life has offered. Her teenage kids prefer social media than listening to her admonishments and her tolerant husband Grant Michael Chernus <more>
cannot understand why she is so restless. To ease her sexual and career frustration, Lisa attends an evening poetry class to immerse herself in literary beauty, hoping to become a writer despite a paucity of talent.Her dreams are answered in the strangest of ways. One day in kindergarten, she overhears five-year old Jimmy Parker Sevak spontaneously create a short poem. To Lisa, this is an epiphany: if she cannot find great writing within, then her gift is to recognise sycg prodigious talent. She plagiarises Jimmy's poem and her evening class and teacher are impressed. Believing that only she can save Jimmy's talent from obscurity, she becomes obsessed with the boy and ingratiates herself into his broken family life.This storyline description does not come close to capturing how disturbing Lisa's behaviour becomes. Today's global awareness of child abuse has rewritten the rules of how an adult can relate to a child. At first imperceptibly then manifestly obvious, Lisa bends then breaks all the rules for child contact. Her physical touch, excessive attention, and taking him where others cannot see, gradually dial-ups audience levels of discomfort. When Jimmy's father withdraws him from the kindergarten because of Lisa's behaviour, her complete breakdown and subsequent responses make it impossible to predict where her obsession might lead.There are many horror and thriller films that pale alongside The Kindergarten Teacher: it is a superb example of how less can be more in filmmaking. Reliance on ambiguity and audience imagination creates a tense psycho-drama on the nature of psychotic obsession. Maggie Gyllenhaal gives an extraordinary yet understated performance; she dominates every scene and exudes normality with just a hint of madness. Young Parker Sevak is amazing in his innocence and bewilderment over the fuss he seems to cause. Tight direction keeps the narrative moving forward with well-measured escalating tension until it is impossible to guess what will happen next in this low-key but highly disturbing film.
It's supposed to be disturbing. (by thoseindifferentclocks)
I've never reviewed a film on IMDb but this felt necessary, because a lot of you completely miss the point. There's a difference between an honest look at mental Illness and validating the actions of a mentally ill person. This movie in no way says that what the title character is doing okay. It just had you watch the behavior and judge it as you will. This is a sad story. As an artist, poet and highly creative person, it made me think about how difficult it is when we only value one type of intelligence or life experience. It does have psycho sexual themes but there's a <more>
difference between elevating /romanticizing a child, lack of boundaries, and being a pedophile.It's uncomfortable, yeah. But obsession is. And obsession dissnr have to equate to sexual desire. The little boy in this story is not sexualized.
intense quick journey into a somewhat disturbingly obsessed mind. (by Aktham_Tashtush)
Well first i gotta say I loved seeing Maggie Gyllenhaal back to big screen ,, and it's safe to say she's still one of few actresses that is comfortable with her body ; :DThe movie is really good ,, though it looked short ,, which implies somehow the plot was not fully structurally complete but still it was a near ideal drama of the obsessive mind to the wanna be ... that's what gave the movie more intense and thrill ingested in that Drama screenplay , and as i said even though it looked short yet it gave a not shocking but satisfactory ending.The cast were all really good ,, the <more>
talented Maggie Gyllenhaal ,, always acing that desperate facial expression,, hopeful yet tense ,, the kid too "Parker Sevak" for a 5 year old first time on the business, he did really well.final thought, yet again, Netflix is here to stay, and i think they are on the way to take over... Recommended .
