The Teachers' Lounge

Nominated for an Academy Award for Best International Film, The Teacher's Lounge (Das Lehrerzimmer) is scintillating drama about the power dynamics in a school system where every decision feels like a mistake.

Carla Nowak (Leonie Benesch) is a dedicated, idealistic young teacher in her first job at a German school. Her relationship with her seventh-grade students is put under stress when a series of thefts occur, and a staff investigation leads to accusations and mistrust among outraged parents, opinionated colleagues, and angry students. Caught in the middle of these complex dynamics, Carla tries to mediate—but the more she tries to do everything right, the closer she gets to breaking point.
