Critic Reviews for The Kindergarten Teacher
While Gyllenhaal's work should be enough to satisfy anyone wondering why this movie needed to be made twice, Colangelo makes fine use of the story's new American context.
[Maggie] Gyllenhaal offers a beautifully nuanced performance full of intelligence and desperation. She taps into something deep about the unmet emotional needs of a woman whose life is spent putting forth energy toward others.
[Maggie] Gyllenhaal, appearing in every single scene of the film, gives a completely committed, three-dimensional performance.
Lisa's drive is more than biological; it's intellectual and emotional, and that's what keeps what often risks becoming camp madness in an identifiably human place - almost all the way to the end.
Rippling with psychological complexity and sneaky humor, this is a rich character study that takes constantly surprising turns, which should appeal to audiences hungry for idiosyncratic adult drama.
