Critic Reviews for A Teacher: Miniseries

All Critics (32) | Top Critics (18)

The slow drip of short weekly episodes does not do the series any favors, because the sum of the series is much stronger than the episodes standing alone.

There's no preachiness, just a chronicle of what happened. I went from hating the show and preparing my devastating review to deeply admiring it.

It's purposefully disquieting and thoroughly disturbing, anchored by strong performances from Mara and Robinson that underscore how our gendered stereotypes are failing those who need protection most.

At a time when TV embraces inventive and risky storytelling, "A Teacher" looks and feels like something that belonged on cable 10 years ago.

Kate Mara's work... is interesting, because it gives her character a humanity that is difficult to construct as long as she is aware from which place the viewer perceives her. [Full review in Spanish]

A Teacher's subject matter won't be for everyone - it rightly comes with a grooming warning - but if you're a fan of sensitively handled, superbly paced, suspense-filled drama, then you'll likely be quickly hooked.
