A series of thefts occur at German secondary school and suspicion falls on various students. When teacher Carla Nowak attempts a novel way to catch the culprit, the result of her investigation sees her caught between her pupils and colleagues, and her ideals and the school system. Part a brilliantly observed drama and part a suspenseful, heart-racing thriller, The Teacher's Lounge is a smart modern parable, interrogating social class and race dynamics. Leonie Benesch (The White Ribbon, The Crown) is enthralling as Carla, while also being supported by some remarkable performances from the film's young cast.
