A small but likable film.
Hart manages to capture those uniquely intimate and complicated friendships that crop up between teachers and students... Rabe does a masterful job of conveying Miss Stevens' fragility.
A low-key and intelligent character study.
Ms. Rabe's beautifully balanced performance reminds you that people never really grow up.
It acknowledges that the best versions of ourselves are often written-sometimes by the hand of other people-when we're not looking, when a third-act plot twist jerks the wheel left.
Acknowledges that the boundary between instructor and charge is a necessary but complicated one, especially when messy, needy, well-meaning human beings are on both sides of that line.
Miss Stevens is an infinitely charming movie with an emotionally honest core.
It may not come off as very warm or funny despite its being billed as a comedy, yet Miss Stevens is a satisfying film both in front of and behind the camera.
Undoubtedly, a tiny pearl to be discovered in an ocean of mediocrity and obscurity. [Full review in Spanish]
Miss Stevens is a sensitive foray into the teacher drama that doesn't leap over convention so much as gives it a warm hug, anchored by an entrancing performance by Lily Rabe.
Hart imbues the film with both a natural visual harmony, as well as the simplicity of a lasting message: There are no easy answers when dealing with the complexities of other human beings.
Miss Stevens is a moving comedy-drama that works in concert with the habitual expectations of the audience to weave a tale that's run-through with absolute truth.
