Netflix Debuts 'The Kindergarten Teacher' Trailer - Watch Now!

Netflix debuted the trailer for The Kindergarten Teacher, which you can watch right here!

The film was written and directed by Sara Colangelo, and will premiere on October 12 on the streaming service.

The movie stars Maggie Gyllenhaal, Parker Sevak, Anna Baryshnikov, Rosa Salazar with Michael Chernus and Gael Garcia Bernal.

In the film, Lisa Spinelli (Gyllenhaal) is a kindergarten teacher in Staten Island who yearns to live a life of art and intellectualism. She takes an evening poetry class but, despite her best efforts, her work is mediocre. When she overhears Jimmy (Sevak), one of her five-year-old students, reciting an original poem in her classroom, she is floored. Convinced he is the equivalent of a young Mozart, she becomes obsessed with the child and embarks on a dangerous journey to nurture his talent. As Lisa continues down this increasingly desperate path, she seems ready to throw away everything to chase an impossible dream.

Maggie Gyllenhaal Reveals What It's Like to Act While Wearing No Clothes for Sex Scenes

Maggie Gyllenhaal is featured in W magazine’s new feature!

Here’s what The Deuce star had to share with the mag…

On if it’s hard to act when you’re in the buff: “Here’s the trick: You have to look at a sex scene as an opportunity to express things that can be expressed best when people are making love. Or f*cking. Or whatever. But, in fact, I’m a sex worker in The Deuce, so I have to pretend to f*ck someone I’ve just met. And then another guy. And another. So what’s expressed in those scenes is somebody who’s doing a transaction. Then it’s fine to act naked, because all these other things are going on in your mind.”

On if she watched 70s porn to prepare for The Deuce: “Yes, I watched some Lasse Braun movies. He was a very playful Italian porn director. But I haven’t seen Deep Throat. I did read the autobiography of Tina Russell, a pretty famous porn star in the early ’70s, when the mood was ‘we are all f*cking and free and we love it.’ I do believe in showing that kind of sexual freedom. On the other hand, she wrote that book when she was in her early 20s and was dead less than a decade later of alcoholism. So, for The Deuce, I’m into that combination of things: They’re both true.”

Claire Foy, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Angela Bassett & More Actresses Discuss Being a Woman in Hollywood

Angela Bassett, Claire Foy, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Elisabeth Moss, Thandie Newton and Sandra Oh are all featured on the cover of THR‘s annual dramatic actress roundtable issue.

Here’s what the actresses had to say…

Claire, on her decision to speak about The Crown‘s gender pay gap openly: “I [could have] kept my mouth shut and said, ‘I have nothing to say, I’m a robot.’ I was part of a really incredible show that I’m really proud of and grateful for, but that shouldn’t stop me from having an opinion about something that I have been brought into the center of.”

Maggie, on HBO’s focus on gender parity after Netflix’s blunder with The Crown: “Honestly there was so much talk, and where was the action? And then I just get a call going over the bridge to Brooklyn saying my salary now is way higher than I ever considered it would be, and it’s because of these conversations. At first, I was like, ‘Wait, this is not fair. Why do I get to win the lottery?’ And then I went, ‘No, it’s been unfair to the point where I’ve digested it and accepted it without ever considering that it could or should be equal.’”

Angela, weighing in when the other ladies spoke on being asked to use sexuality to further their career: “I’ve not been asked to use my sexuality in my career. Not as a black woman.”
