Loz Loory's rating of the film The Kindergarten Teacher

2.5 Morally chilling. Children are like ants; they are so easily crushed by the world in terrible physical & psychological ways. The teacher's attempts to "help" the boy, beginning with the speech about ants & violence, were horrifying. This boy has a creative process that he is too young to be asked to discuss. He needs to be protected & allowed to grow into a full person, without the pressure of "producing work."
