Cinedigm, via iTunes Movie Trailers, has released the first theatrical trailer and poster for director Craig Zisk‘s romantic comedy The English Teacher. The film stars Julianne Moore, Greg Kinnear, Nathan Lane, Michael Angarano, Lily Collins, and Nikki Blonsky. The English Teacher is scheduled to arrive in theaters on May 17th.
In the film, 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 (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 (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 (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?
