“A Teacher” ditches style, insight, and sexual politics for debased suburban behavior. At a time when TV embraces inventive and risky storytelling, “A Teacher” looks and feels like something that belonged on cable 10 years ago.

Robinson, with his boyish, sad-eyed beauty and quiet charm, deftly manages Eric’s transition from lovestruck kid to haunted young adult. He and Mara have a palpable chemistry (but don’t worry, folks — Robinson is 25). As Claire, Mara does her best work after the affair is exposed.

This A Teacher isn’t a stretched-out “five-hour movie” of her original vision, but a miniseries that feels much more fleshed-out and thought-through, with surprisingly little overlap between the two projects.
