Oscilloscope Laboratories Grabs Hannah Fidell’s ‘A Teacher’

A Teacher

Briefly: Oscilloscope Laboratories has just announced via press release that it has picked up the North American rights to Hannah Fidell’s feature directorial debut, A Teacher. The Lindsay Burdge-starring slow burn debuted at the Sundance Film Festival just last month to significant acclaim. Oscilloscope is reportedly planning a theatrical, video-on-demand, and digital release for the film later this year.

The film will also show at next month’s SXSW Film Festival. Can’t wait till then to get entangled in Fidell’s tale of a high school teacher gone mad, thanks to an affair with one of her students? Check out my review from Sundance, in which I praise both Burdge’s assured performance and Fidell’s tight script and strong grasp on tension.
