This movie was a disappoint with all the good reviews it got. This movie is basically about the day in the life of a drug addict teacher. Nothing really big here.

I really liked this movie and Ryan Gosling is great, but I'm not sure why it's not called "My Teacher Smokes Crack."

Excellent acting and writing, but a depressing story.

Good movie, especially considering it was shot in 23 days. If you like darker movies, then this one is for you. Great acting, and a great script make this a must see.

While stories of teachers having an impact on troubled teenagers are plenty, it was a nice change to see the teacher in a vulnerable position as well. I'd recommend this film to others.

Dan: Change moves in spirals, not circles. For example, the sun goes up and then it goes down. But every time that happens, what do you get? You get a new day. You get a new one. When you breathe, you inhale and you exhale, but every single time that you do that you're a little bit different then the one before. We're always changing. And its important to know that there are some changes you can't control and that there are others you can.
