Devoted small-town English teacher Linda yearns for love. Enter Jason, a former student whose career as a Broadway playwright didn't pan out. When she persuades him to stage his play at the school before giving up, love — and controversy — arise.

Movies on teachers... how many? This one is not a memorable one, although the point made is not the most fashionable one right now, which is about the value of being true to your project without wanting to get the public reward of it, it is not about fame, but about the positive result overall. It is actually pretty much opposite to what all movies are about lately, reward for being successful. Juliane Moore portrays the teacher the way she portrays anything, to the perfection. The rest of the characters are quite clich├ęs, and the acting exaggerated. Somehow, still, the point is made in such a way that it seems to conflict itself, questioning how in a way not so fancy it is to not get the rewards for your work and letting the other take over.
