Quotes

Jimmy Roy: The gold rusts, The warmth breaks And the light comes at morning, The police start their way to the dining hall, And the sound of World War Three is out there. Dust is out. And pray God, The wedding is coming. And the reciting poem is here.

Fantastic lead performance carries this disturbing, slow-burn thriller
16 October 2018 | by starboy_1701See all my reviews

Maggie Gyllenhaal gives a stellar performance in The Kindergarten Teacher. This movie was a touch watch, but it was oh-so-worth it. It was very slow and methodical. I'm laughing at all the one-three star reviews because it's clearly people who were on their phone half the time or just haven't ever seen a movie which actually makes them feel something for a change. I don't normally post reviews because why should anyone care about my opinion, but I couldn't let this great movie get bogged down by fools who coooompletely missed the point the movie was trying to get across.
