Movie Info

A bright young girl at a prestigious private school begins to realize her true potential after falling into an affair with her worldly English teacher in this tender coming-of-age drama from Canada. Molly Maxwell (Lola Tash) may study alongside prodigies and young geniuses, but she's never felt like she was truly one of them. Unwilling to devote herself to any one course for fear of failure, Molly languishes in a sea of uncertainty until the day her English teacher unlocks her true potential. In doing so, however, he unwittingly risks posing more problems for his promising young student than solutions.

Critic Reviews for Molly Maxwell

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

  • A first feature that, much like its young protagonist, is sometimes awkward and stiff but always refreshingly candid. And honesty is a tonic to even the most tired genre.

  • It draws the audience into an ethical quandary that instills an uncomfortable sense of complicity. As a result, we never end up sympathizing for the main characters or investing in the romance.

  • Most of the story unfolds in a creative environment. Nonetheless, the photographs that are significant to the narrative are as beautiful as the characters describe.

  • The charming Lola Tash alternates with ease between adorable kid, awkward teen and dangerous seductress. Whatever flaws the film may have can be overlooked because Tash sells them so well.

    A lost film it seems anchored by Lola Tash who I hope will have a promising career in Canadian film.
