Craig Zisk, one of my favorite cable TV directors (Weeds! Nurse Jackie!) makes the leap to feature films with this giddy delight penned by Dan & Stacy Chariton.
Linda Sinclair (Julianne Moore) is the eponymous high school English Teacher who must wrestle with the “omniscient narrator” in her head (hilariously voiced by Fiona Shaw) to get her life back.
Anchored by pitch-perfect performance by Moore, terrific cast put new life in the familiar “Let’s Put on a Show!” plot. (JLH: 4/5)
