THE STORY

Based on the 2014 Israeli film of the same name, The Kindergarten Teacher stars Maggie Gyllenhaal as a forty-year old married kindergarten teacher living in Staten Island who is terminally bored with her banal middle-class existence. When she becomes convinced that her five-year-old student is a budding poetic genius, she decides to nurture his talents in a reckless and questionable manner.
