The Kindergarten Teacher Trailer

Maggie Gyllenhaal Will Make You Gasp in the Unhinged Trailer For The Kindergarten Teacher

Netflix's The Kindergarten Teacher isn't necessarily being billed as a thriller, but the first trailer for the Sundance and TIFF-award winner will leave you deeply unsettled. Maggie Gyllenhaal plays Lisa Spinelli, a Staten Island kindergarten teacher who discovers that her 5-year-old student Jimmy (Parker Sevak) is potentially a gifted poet. Despite his parents' clear instructions that Jimmy not get involved with Lisa's poetic aspirations, the teacher finds herself heading down a dangerous path of obsession with the child. More than a few moments from the trailer will make you gasp, so check it out above before The Kindergarten Teacher hits the streaming network on Oct. 12.
