Prim schoolteacher Miss Meadows (Katie Holmes) is not entirely what she appears. Well-mannered, sweet, and caring, yes, but underneath the candy-sweet exterior hides the soul of a vigilante, taking it upon herself to right the wrongs in this cruel world by whatever means necessary. Things get complicated, however, when Miss Meadows gets romantically entangled with the town sheriff (James Badge Dale) and her steadfast moral compass is thrown off, begging the question: "Who is the real Miss Meadows and what is she hiding?"Written by

I went to see Miss Meadows - I loved the film for a number of reasons. creepy, quirky, poignant, really funny and atmospheric. miss meadows reached me. Katie Holmes was amazing in her portrayal and one of my favorite Twilight Zone episodes is the one about Anthony played by Billy Mumy where everyone is in agreement with the little boy for fear that he'll wish them into the corn field. miss meadows captured that eeriness which I relish but then the raw underbelly of her pain is revealed and with her, writer director, Karen Leigh Hopkins has created one of the great and memorable characters of the screen. seriously. not patronizing. amen.
