Writer-director Sarah Colangelo’s feature film is based on the 2014 Israeli film of the same name. Maggie Gyllenhaal plays 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.

“Exquisitely non-judgmental, this is one of those little films that restores your faith in indie cinema.” London Evening Standard.

“It’s the best performance from Gyllenhaal since her breakthrough performance in Steven Shainberg’s 2002 cult classic Secretary.” Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian.
