The English Teacher
(Roadshow Entertainment, M)

She's 40, she's single and she lives and breathes her work as an English teacher.

REVIEW: Julianne Moore, (Hunger Games, Carrie), plays that role as 40-year-old Linda Sinclair.

She doesn't, and never really has, gotten out much with her focus being on what she's going to teach next or when her favourite book is out.

But one day one of her former pupils turns up. He's an out of work playwright and Sinclair coaxes him into writing a play for her students.

Fair to say he brings her out of her shell but it comes at a cost.

The students rebel and high school staff are also unimpressed, but Sinclair soldiers on.

The English Teacher is an easy watch, a light-hearted comedy/rom com which also features Greg Kinnear (Little Miss Sunshine) and Michael Angarano, who plays the young William Miller in Almost Famous.

It's a bit of a slow burner but it's worth a watch.
