“Learning to lap dance was liberating,” Juno told UK’s The Telegraph. “It made me more at ease with my body. But we all have: ‘Am I smart or pretty enough?’ moments. I’m more comfortable about nudity when I’m playing someone else, but putting on a bathing suit at a pool party? That’s still intimidating.”

Here is the film’s synopsis: Linda Sinclair (Moore) is a 40-year-old unmarried high school English teacher in the small town of Kingston, PA. Her simple life turns an unexpected page when former student Jason Sherwood (Michael Angarano) returns home after trying to make it as a playwright in New York. On the verge of abandoning art and pressured by his father (Greg Kinnear), to face reality and go to law school, Linda decides to mount his play—a dark, angst-ridden, ambitious work—as a Kingston High production, with flamboyant drama teacher Carl Kapinas (Nathan Lane) directing. Now well out of her comfort zone, Linda takes further risks in life and love, the stage is set for a highly comic downfall. With the play, her reputation, and teaching career on the line, Linda finds an unlikely ally in herself. Amidst the ruins of her formerly perfect life, can she find a way to her own unique storybook ending?
The English Teacher will premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival this month before hitting theaters on May 17.
