Maggie Gyllenhaal gives arguably her best performance yet in Sara Colangelo’s (Little Accidents) superb new drama. Caring, patient Staten Island kindergarten teacher Lisa (Gyllenhaal) spends her days teaching precocious youngsters and her evenings attending classes in Manhattan; while navigating a marriage devoid of chemistry and her own disinterested children at home. When she inadvertently discovers her five-year-old student, Jimmy (Parker Sevak) is a gifted prodigy, she becomes determined to nurture his talent before his dismissive family destroy it – but her desire to do so sets her on a dangerous and desperate path.
