The Teacher

This Czech dramedy is set in Bratislava during the '80s, the final decade of old-school communism. When a new teacher (the frightening Zuzana Mauréry) at the local middle school turns out to be manipulative and corrupt, the parents band together to get her fired. The only problem? She's the head of the local Communist Party. This caustic and humorous history lesson comes from the director-writer duo of Jan Hrebejk and Petr Jarchovsky (Divided We Fall, Up and Down, Honeymoon). 103 minutes (Opens Sunday 12/3)
