A kindergarten teacher in New York becomes obsessed with one of her students whom she believes is a child prodigy. (IMDb)
Thanks to its stellar script and star, it masterfully builds tension and slowly amps up the creepiness from the most subtly discomforting of moments to the downright disturbing third act (Lisa’s initially puzzling choice to let Jimmy read his poems being the only blip along the way). She’s a fascinating character, wonderfully nuanced (see her kind of helping Jimmy at the end) and naturally developed (the smartly written supporting characters really help here). The sparse score was a great touch.
8/10 (Great)
