The English Teacher
Julianne Moore stars as small-town Pennsylvania schoolteacher Linda Sinclair, who balances her staid home life with an incredible passion for her subject. Then a former star pupil reenters her life after failing as a playwright in New York City. Seeing in his script the inspiration that she has always longed to instill in her students, this dyed-in-the-wool romantic enlists the help of long-suffering drama teacher Carl—played with scene-stealing gusto by Nathan Lane—to mount the work as the high school’s next and riskiest production. In so doing, they make promises and decisions that they can never take back.
