What parents need to know

Parents need to know that The English Teacher is an indie comedy about a high school teacher who has a series of seemingly small moral lapses (and one big one) that ultimately compromise her character. Expect a few sexual situations -- without any sensitive bits shown -- as well as some swearing ("s--t," "f--k"). Characters argue, and a woman uses pepper spray a couple of times. Some social drinking by adults.
  • Families can talk about how Linda's character changes over the course of the film. Does she deserve to be punished for her decisions? Could you consider her a role model?
  • What do you think about the relationship between Jason and his father? Who's really the victim here?
