The English Teacher Reviews
I quite enjoyed this movie because I didn't know what to expect. The storyline surprised with the direction that the director took it, and the acting was very believable, especially from Julianne Moore. It had the ability to have many other twists, but the director kept it simple and straightforward. The second half of the movie was a bit disappointing because the first half was going from one impossible situation to the next which makes it seem like it was written by 2 different people. At the end of the day it's a simple sweet movie which is watchable but nothing amazing.
Julianne Moore put in a great performance in this movie and she done a great job with bringing emotion to her role. I expected more from Greg Kinnear who has started in some big movies lately, but that was due to the writer who seemed to have concentrated on Julianne Moore character. The teachers made me laugh, but there not in the movie that much! which is a shame because there chemistry was a joy to watch. It does seem like a small low budget movie, even with Moore & Kinnear, but it's written well and the mixture of humour and drama really worked.
Worldwide Gross: $105,000 (Terrible!)
I recommend this movie to people who are into there comedy/dramas about a school teacher who ends up falling for her student. 4/10
