The Country Teacher
183 Ratings


A gifted young teacher takes a job at a rural school, and befriends a woman and her troubled 17-year old son. When the teacher’s ex-boyfriend comes to visit from the city, he quickly realizes that nobody in the village knows that the teacher is gay and harbors a secret affection for the teenage boy.

Our take

Set in the serene pastoral countryside of the Czech Republic, The Country Teacher is a deeply invested character piece of self-discovery. Articulated in an accomplished style attuned to minute gestures and the smallest dramatic details–this is a quiet yet always moving film.
