The English Teacher: Julianne Moore and Nathan Lane
In the film, Moore plays an English teacher that finds safety in her books. She knows that nothing can harm her when she is immersed in the fantasy worlds. Her best friend is a drama teacher (Nathan Lane) who feels the same way about plays. They try to put on a rather heady play, not meant for high school students. Lane called it a “pretentious, thesis play.”
“Hijinks ensue,” they said.
