Storyline

Linda Sinclair (Julianne Moore) is a forty-year-old unmarried high school English teacher in the small town of Kingston, Pennsylvania. She shares a small apartment with two Siamese cats and her rich collection of great literature. She maintains no close personal relationships aside from those she has with her favorite authors and stories. Her life is far less complicated than the dramas she devours on the page, and she likes it that way. But Linda's simple life turns an unexpected page when former star pupil Jason Sherwood (Michael Angarano) returns to Kingston after trying to make it as a playwright in New York. Now in his 20s, Jason is on the verge of abandoning art, pressured by his overbearing father, Dr. Tom Sherwood (Greg Kinnear), to face reality and go to law school. Linda can't stand the thought of Jason giving up on his dreams so she decides to mount his play - a dark, angst-ridden, ambitious work - as a Kingston High School production, with flamboyant drama teacher Carl ...

Short & Sweet! 4/10
8 March 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Review: I quite enjoyed this movie because I didn't know what to expect. The storyline surprised with the direction that the director took it, and the acting was very believable, especially from Julianne Moore. It had the ability to have many other twists, but the director kept it simple and straightforward. The second half of the movie was a bit disappointing because the first half was going from one impossible situation to the next which makes it seem like it was written by 2 different people. At the end of the day it's a simple sweet movie which is watchable but nothing amazing.

Round-Up: Julianne Moore put in a great performance in this movie and she done a great job with bringing emotion to her role. I expected more from Greg Kinnear who has started in some big movies lately, but that was due to the writer who seemed to have concentrated on Julianne Moore character. The teachers made me laugh, but there not in the movie that much! which is a shame because there chemistry was a joy to watch. It does seem like a small low budget movie, even with Moore & Kinnear, but it's written well and the mixture of humour and drama really worked.

Budget: N/A Worldwide Gross: $105,000 (Terrible!)

I recommend this movie to people who are into there comedy/dramas about a school teacher who ends up falling for her student. 4/10
