We gave it an A

In her dazzling feature debut, writer-director Karen Moncrieff works with a raw, innately feminine strength that has no use for soapiness. Agnes Bruckner and David Strathairn are superb as a budding 18-year-old poet and the high school English teacher whose attention she comes to crave –and, dangerously, to trust.
