TVA FILMS is proud to announce the release of The English Teacher on Friday, July 26th 2013.   
Directed by Craig Zisk, the movie stars Julianne Moore (Crazy Stupid Love, The Hours, The Kids Are All Right), Academy Award® nominee and Emmy award winning actor Greg Kinnear (As Good As It Gets,  Little Miss Sunshine), also starring Lily Collins (Mirror Mirror), the Broadway star Nathan Lane (Mirror MirrorThe Birdcage) and Michael Angarano (Gentlemen Broncos). The English Teacher is the charming story of a small town teacher whose mundane routine is turned around when a former student returns after failing as a playwright in New York City. 

Linda Sinclair (Moore) is a forty-year-old unmarried high school English teacher in the small town of Kingston, Pennsylvania. She shares a small apartment with two Siamese cats and her rich collection of great literature, and she likes it that way. But Linda's simple life turns an unexpected page when former star pupil Jason Sherwood (Angarano) returns to Kingston after trying to make it as a playwright in New York. Now in his 20s, Jason is on the verge of abandoning art, pressured by his overbearing father (Kinnear), to face reality and go to law school. Linda can't stand the thought of Jason giving up on his dreams so she decides to mount his play - a dark, angst-ridden, ambitious work - as a Kingston High School production, with flamboyant drama teacher Carl Kapinas (Lane) directing. With the play, her reputation, and her teaching career on the line, Linda finds an unlikely ally in herself. 

THE ENGLISH TEACHER marks Craig Zisk's feature film debut ; he won a Golden Globe for Brooklyn Bridge, and earned multiple Emmy nominations for The Larry Sanders Show and Weeds.
