Perfect Imperfection

While watching The English Teacher I kept thinking how boring it would be if everyone were perfect. This amusing comedy features a host of flawed characters -- and the one with the most faults just happens to be our heroine, a 40-year-old unmarried high school English teacher played brilliantly by Julianne Moore. The main character here is a finicky woman who even grades her suitors! When not teaching, she spends most of her time reading books by her favorite authors. She avoids personal relationships and enjoys an uncomplicated life free from real drama -- at least until a former student shows up and brings out another side of her -- which changes her in ways she never expected. Although not a pretty sight, it’s a very entertaining one!
