Storyline:

Prim schoolteacher Miss Meadows (Katie Holmes) is not entirely what she appears. Well-mannered, sweet, and caring, yes, but underneath the candy-sweet exterior hides the soul of a vigilante, taking it upon herself to right the wrongs in this cruel world by whatever means necessary. Things get complicated, however, when Miss Meadows gets romantically entangled with the town sheriff (James Badge Dale) and her steadfast moral compass is thrown off, begging the question: “Who is the real Miss Meadows and what is she hiding?”

One review

  • Miss Mary Meadows (Katie Holmes) strolls down a leafy suburban neighbourhood like Snow White come to life. Garbed in a lovely floral print dress, bobby socks and saddle shoes, a ribbon in her hair, white gloves on her hands, she exudes cheer as she tap dances and talks with the birds and squirrels. She’s like a kid playing dress up, but she certainly doesn’t play well with others. When a driver starts chatting her up and tells her to get into his car, she reaches into her pocketbook, pulls out a .25 and shoots him dead. Cue opening credits.

    Prim and proper and armed with the best of manners, Miss Meadows is “substituting at a low-income, racially-mixed, bottom-scoring, first grade classroom” where she teaches children that the most important things in life are kindness and courage. She soon catches the eye of a local cop she nicknames Sheriff (James Badge Dale), who’s puzzled and attracted by her old-fashionedness and eccentricity. Not many people would illegally park their car to check on a toad’s condition after all.
