A Teacher explores the complexities and consequences of a predatory relationship between Claire Wilson, a young teacher at a suburban Texas high school and her student, Eric Walker.

When A Teacher kicks off, Kate Mara's Claire is a young teacher at a Texas high school, unsatisfied in her marriage. She soon gets close to a charming high school student, Eric, and the two engage in an illicit affair. When their relationship is exposed, we see how Eric struggles with his feelings and how the trauma from the affair haunts him for years to come.

This may be spoiling a big chunk of the plot, but it's important to understand that this isn't a series that romanticises the student/teacher relationship. It's obvious that Claire is behaving badly and that Eric gets caught up in the affair, as well as that he will have to process what went down for a long time. This isn't forbidden love, it's abuse – and the series sends that message loud and clear.

Plus, A Teacher is more about the characters and their interactions. Both Mara (House of Cards) and Nick Robinson (Love, Simon) offer nuanced performances, which is a big reason why the miniseries is so captivating.

The power dynamics between a female abuser and a young male victim don't often get a lot of screen time, so we strongly advise you give A Teacher a stream. With a 72% score on Rotten Tomatoes, it's definitely worth your time.
