A rewarding, convention breaking, and often painful drama following a teacher and student.

This is a quiet film that shows two characters trying to figure out how to get out of their relative destructive patterns. Ryan Gosling is magnificent, giving a quiet and thoughtful portrayal of a young, but washed-up teacher. I wasn't in love with the ending, which may be a little too perfect, but the film has some great and moving scenes.
