One of the most buzzed about titles to play in this year’s NEXT section at the recently wrapped Sundance Film Festival was Hannah Fiddell’s blistering debut “A Teacher,” starring Lindsay Burdge. Indiewire has the exclusive first trailer and poster for the drama.
In “A Teacher,” Burdge plays an attractive suburban Texas high school teacher engaged in a heated affair with a male student (Will Brittain). The subject matter alone attracted a lot of attention prior to the film’s premiere, and following its unveiling Burdge emerged as one of the breakouts of the festival with a performance The Hollywood Reporter praised as “commandingly internalized.”
The film next plays at the upcoming SXSW Film Festival (March 8-16) in the Festival Favorites category. Go HERE for the full lineup. Below, watch the trailer and view the poster:
