The English Teacher isn't a great movie, but I found it thoroughly enjoyable. It's about a high school teacher who becomes overly invested in the production of a school play. A former student had unsuccessfully pursued a career as a playwright and Julianne Moore's character is determined to make it come to life.
As she unravels, there are many humorous but painful moments. In some ways the story reminded me of Election. But this is not as clever, nor as dark, a movie.
