The Kindergarten Teacher (2018)

By Pete Wright | May 19, 2020

JJ and Steve finish off the first half of 2020 with 2018’s The Kindergarten Teacher. This is an American remake of 2014’s The Kindergarten Teacher from Israel. There is no doubt that this is truly Maggie Gyllenhaall’s film. This adaptation is a more accessible film, but it has lost many of the elements that JJ and Steve enjoyed and appreciated in the original.

Steve and JJ are really split on this one. JJ was disappointed that this was more of a poem than a film and wasn’t happy about the execution of this film. Steve, on the other hand, gives it praise for its ambitiousness and the opening sequence before the titles.
