On behalf of Cinedigm and Tribeca Film, we are pleased to share the official theatrical trailer for their upcoming film, THE ENGLISH TEACHER.

When a disheartened former student moves back into town after failing to make it as a playwright in New York, Linda decides to step out of her comfort zone and mount his play with the

A potentially incisive character study is buried under layers of fluff in The English Teacher.
Apropos of its title, The English Teacher feels like a movie written as a homework assignment.
The report card for low-key high school comedy The English Teacher would read something like this: Weak effort; this student is too easily distracted, fails to follow through and turns in unfinished work.
Pleasant is the perfect word with which to describe The English Teacher, an ingratiating little comedy that aims to please and succeeds at its modest goal.
The movie doesn't do enough with its cast or its idea; it's an underachiever that simply doesn't try hard enough.
A screwball comedy that could have been screwier, "The English Teacher" is as interesting for its cast as its content.
In a perfect encapsulation of form and content, The English Teacher tells a story of an artist who reluctantly adds a happy ending to his play while the movie itself forces a happy ending into a story that is laced with underlying sadness.
Sharp performances can't save this ill-conceived drama set in a contemporary high school that seems to exist on some faraway planet.
Funny and fulfilling, Craig Zisk has created a small, triumphant feature film debut.
In short, The English Teacher is nothing fancy. It's a compromise made in the interest of good taste, and while that may not stand the test of time, it proves easy in the moment.
Julianne Moore excels in this amusing comedy about a flawed heroine who loses all sense of perspective but deserves a happy ending anyway.
Moore shows physical-comedy chops that are both admirable and quite funny..a small but very funny treat with a cast to die for.
