  • Despite a lead performance by the always welcome Julianne Moore it is rudderless in its presentation and outright stupid in its central conceits. show more

  • Nathan Lane steals the show in this tale of a high school English teacher who becomes obsessed with a student's play. show more

  • Under Craig Zisk’s frisky direction, the entire cast is superb and wrinkle-free. The screenplay, by husband-wife team Dan and Stacy Chariton, is thin as a poker chip but as clever as it is contrived. show more
