Story


Samantha Abbott is a dedicated and passionate teacher at an inner-city Chicago high school. Just as she is coming to terms with her school closing, Samantha faces some life-changing and unexpected news: she is pregnant. After breaking the news to her live-in boyfriend John and opinionated mother, Samantha learns that one of her most promising students, Jasmine, has landed in a similar but very different situation.

As the women navigate their ambitions for the future, Samantha and Jasmine forge an unlikely friendship that will challenge their perspectives and leave a lasting impact on one another.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..Unexpected isn't particularly interested in driving the plot forward or holding its leads up... it just lets them live and breathe and make mistakes-not for the aim of any greater message or grand epiphanies, but because that's what people do..”
by Leah Greenblatt [Entertainment Weekly]
“..boring, but not unpleasant. Despite the thin material, teacher and student feel real enough to become emotionally invested..”
by Barbara VanDenburgh [Arizona Republic]
“..for a movie about surprises, though, there really aren't many... this academic study tends to feel like it's by the book..”
by Jordan Hoffman [NY Daily News]
