Synopsis:
Lisa Spinelli (Maggie Gyllenhaal) is a kindergarten teacher in Staten Island who yearns to live a life of art and intellectualism. She takes an evening poetry class where, despite her best efforts, her work is overlooked and misunderstood. When she overhears Jimmy (Parker Sevak), one of her 5-year-old students, reciting an original poem in her classroom, she is floored. Convinced he is the equivalent of a young Mozart, she becomes obsessed with the child and embarks on a dangerous journey to nurture his talent and chase an impossible dream. Directed by Sara Colangelo, the film also stars Gael Garcia Bernal.
