The English Teacher

Honestly, before even watching the trailer, the presence of Greg Kinnear and Lily Collins in the cast line-up on the Apple trailer page made me think this was Stuck in Love. But instead, The English Teacher is a different low key indie comedy starring Julianne Moore as an English teacher who decides to take a risk and put on a former student's (Michael Angarano) dark play at her school, and then they get romantically involved. Maybe the trailer doesn't do the film justice, but it just feel like a collection of quirky moments between Moore, Angarano and Kinnear, but without any real heart or anything to connect to significantly.

Here's the first trailer for Craig Zisk's The English Teacher, originally from Apple:

Linda Sinclair (Julianne Moore) is a 40-year-old unmarried high school English teacher in a small town whose life takes a turn when former student Jason Sherwood (Michael Angarano) returns home after trying to make it as a playwright in New York. On the verge of abandoning art and pressured by his father (Greg Kinnear) to go to law school, Linda decides to mount his play—a dark, angst-ridden, ambitious work—at her school, with flamboyant drama teacher Carl Kapinas (Nathan Lane) directing. With her career on the line, can she get her own unique storybook ending? Greg Kinnear, Nathan Lane, Michael Angarano and Lily Collins also star in The English Teacher from TV director Craig Zisk hitting limited theaters on May 17th.

    Kinda getting tired of these indie comedies.
    • How does one get tired of an entire genre? That's like saying "I'm getting tired of action movies."

        Yes Matt... it seems he is tired of 'independent comedies'. What sort of future are we living in where people can just make 'independent comedies'? .... just turrible.
        • While we're at it how about we get rid of independent film altogether and gives the studios a monopoly on creativity?
