An attractive Russian language teacher takes a new job in the Latvian city of Riga mentoring an unruly group of graduating seniors. After wooing them with drunken parties at her apartment, she shrewdly takes control of the class—until one of her male students begins to pursue her. Superbly directed with subtlety, empathy and suspense, director Andris Gauja lets this surprising and satisfying character-driven story unfold with all the messiness of real life. In color, HD, with English language subtitles.
