THE KINDERGARTEN TEACHER is a US drama in which a teacher becomes obsessed with her five year old student after believing him to be a poetic genius.

Sex

A man and woman kiss passionately and begin to undress; they are interrupted before sex takes place. In another scene, it is implied that a man and woman have sex after he removes her top and kisses her. A woman wears a translucent bra and her breasts are partially visible. Occasional sex references include a use of the term 'pussy'.

Drugs

A woman discovers her daughter smoking a joint.

Language

There is infrequent strong language ('f**k'), as well as use of the moderate term 'bitch', and milder terms such as 'shit', 'ass', 'ho', 'butt', 'hell' and 'God'.

Theme

A teacher abuses her position of trust. There are scenes in which she takes her five year old student to events without parental permission, before she eventually abducts him. Her obsessive interest in the child is entirely non-sexual. The child is never harmed, nor is it implied that the teacher wishes to harm him at any point.

There are also scenes of natural breast nudity.
