The Teachers' Lounge

A smart and provocative modern parable with the heart of a thriller.

Nominated! 96th Academy Awards - Best International Feature.

Carla Nowak, a dedicated sports and math teacher, starts her first job at a high school. She stands out among the new staff because of her idealism. When a series of thefts occur at the school and one of her students is suspected, she decides to get to the bottom of the matter on her own. Carla tries to mediate between outraged parents, opinionated colleagues and aggressive students, but is relentlessly confronted with the structures of the school system. The more desperately she tries to do everything right, the more the young teacher threatens to break.

"The Teachers’ Lounge is a pulse-pounding exploration of the ways we draw lines between enemies and friends, and the courage it takes to blur them." - Hollywood Reporter

"It delivers you directly into a sense memory of chalk dust and boredom, of fidgeting at your desk and gazing longingly through big windows that seem tauntingly designed for exactly that purpose." - Variety

"It just might be the most nerve-shredding thriller of the year." - Mashable

"The director, screenwriters, production team and cast turn a small story about a well-intentioned teacher into a modern classroom parable. An amazing achievement." -
