If I’m honest, I wasn’t really expecting much from the trailer for The English Teacher and I’m pleasantly surprised!
It looks like it could be a clever and witty film with some fantastic performances.
My main criticism of the trailer is that it delves a little deeply into the plot and touches upon the common mistake of giving away the entire film.
Linda Sinclair (Julianne Moore) is a 40-year-old unmarried high school English teacher in the small town of Kingston, PA. Her simple life turns an unexpected page when former student Jason Sherwood (Michael Angarano) returns home after trying to make it as a playwright in New York. On the verge of abandoning art and pressured by his father (Greg Kinnear), to face reality and go to law school, Linda decides to mount his play—a dark, angst-ridden, ambitious work—as a Kingston.
The English Teacher is directed by Craig Zisk and stars Julianne Moore, Greg Kinnear, Nathan Lane, Michael Angarano, Lily Collins and Nikki Blonsky.
The English Teacher is in theaters May 17th, 2013!
