From 30 August:  THE KINDERGARTEN TEACHER, starring Maggie Gyllenhaal, Gael Garcia Bernal

Stuck in an unsatisfying marriage and with teenage children who ignore her, 40-year-old Lisa Spinelli treads water by teaching kindergarten with quiet dispassion.  Everything changes when Lisa discovers that Jimmy, a five-year-old boy in her class, may be a gifted poet and sees him as a ticket out of her mundane life.  When Lisa presents some of Jimmy’s work at her poetry class as her own and receives praise from her teacher, her desire to mentor the child genius grows.  As fascination turns to obsession, Lisa spirals downward on a dangerous and desperate path to channel her unfulfilled creative dreams into the protégé.  Rated M
