Maggie Gyllenhaal has always been a strong actress, but she’s always unfortunately lived under the shadow of her brother Jake Gyllenhaal. Still, when she leads a project, that project is worth at least given a look-see. Her upcoming film The Kindergarten Teacher is one such project. The synopsis is as follows:
A kindergarten teacher in New York becomes obsessed with one of her students who she believes is a child prodigy.
The film will be available on Netflix on October 12th but for now we have the first trailer for it. Check it out below:
The Kindergarten Teacher co-stars Parker Sevak, Anna Baryshnikov, Rosa Salazar, Michael Chernus, and Gael García Bernal. It is written and directed by Sara Colangelo. It is set to hit theaters October 12th.
