Linda (Julianne Moore, Game Change, The Kids Are All Right) is a forty-year-old unmarried high school English teacher in the small town. She shares a small apartment with two cats and her rich collection of great literature. She maintains no close personal relationships aside from those she has with her favorite authors. Her life is far less complicated than the dramas she devours on the page, and she likes it that way.
But Linda s simple life changes when former star pupil Jason (Michael Angarano, Haywire, Red State) returns to town after failing as a playwright in New York. Pressured by his overbearing father (Greg Kinnear, Little Miss Sunshine, Stuck in Love), Jason may be forced to give up his dreams and go to law school. Unwilling to let that happen, Linda mounts his play at her school with flamboyant drama teacher Carl (Nathan Lane, The Producers, The Birdcage) directing, and puts her own reputation and teaching career on the line.
