Notes on the Banal: Zisk’s Debut a Toothless Version of Familiar Material

After working exclusively in the realm of television since the 1990s, director Craig Zisk lands a high profile cast for his feature film debut, The English Teacher, which looks on paper like something of a cross between Notes on a Scandal and Hamlet 2. But even though its glossy pedigree hints at potentially subversive elements laced with acerbic comedic flare, Zisk, with a screenplay from Dan and Stacy Chariton, plays with its controversial elements apprehensively, awkwardly unraveling like a neutered version of similarly themed films. While at its core it does happen to sport a watchable lead performance from its star, the film ultimately does her no favors, crushing its own titular protagonist beneath the wheels of a predictable finale.

'The English Teacher' review: Julianne Moore earns a C - at best

23 May 2013 6:00 AM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

The line between "cute" and "cutesy" is violated, repeatedly, in the sometimes funny, often cloying comedy "The English Teacher." We're treated to the rare talents of Julianne Moore in a gently predictable "dark" comedy sprinkled with the most adorably heavy handed flourishes.

Start with the narration (by the oh-so-British Fiona Shaw). We're told that Linda Sinclair is an unmarried 45-year-old small-town Pennsylvania high school teacher with "no prospects" but with a "life's purpose -- igniting the flames of literary passion in young minds."

Linda teaches and grades kids. And when she dates, she "grades" them too, her red marker jotting judgments all over the screen around them -- "arrogant," "unmotivated," "F."

Then a star pupil (Michael Angarano) returns to town, an Nyu playwriting graduate with a play no one will produce, resigned to do as his father (Greg Kinnear) wants and go to law school. Linda reads the play, weeps over "The Chrysalis, »

Film Review: ‘The English Teacher’

13 May 2013 10:39 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Graded on a curve, “The English Teacher” is an affable if familiar high-school comedy populated by bright pupils, badly behaved teachers and amateur theatricals. Clearly inspired by — but never as inspired as — the likes of “Election,” “Rushmore” and “Glee,” this feature directing debut for smallscreen vet Craig Zisk (“Weeds,” “The Larry Sanders Show”) benefits from a brisk pace, witty banter and engaging performances, yet still fades from memory faster than a final exam on the first day of summer vacation. A world premiere at Tribeca, which is also partnering with Cinedigm on the pic’s VOD and theatrical distribution, “Teacher” should perform best with the study-from-home crowd.

In a variation on the lovelorn widow she plays in Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Sundance hit “Don Jon,” the always resourceful Moore here stars as Linda Sinclair, a 45-year-old spinster who grades potential suitors with the same unforgiving red pen she brings to her »

The English Teacher Movie Review

Title: The English Teacher Cinedigm Director: Craig Zisk Screenwriter: Dan Chariton, Stacy Chariton Cast: Julianne Moore, Michael Angarano, Greg Kinnear, Lily Collins, Nathan Lane Screened at: Review 1, NYC, 5/1/13 Opens: May 17, 2013 They say that the best way to learn a subject is to teach it, and, as a former high school chalk-pusher I heartily agree. In Craig Zisk’s “The English Teacher,” the title character teaches the likes of “A Tale of Two Cities” while some of the greats taped to the walls like Mark Twain overlook the classroom. The teacher represents learning a lot about Charles Dickens by searching out good questions for classroom discussion. But what  [ Read More ]
