Storyline

When Miss Stevens chaperones three of her students - Billy, Margot and Sam - on a weekend trip to a drama competition, she discovers that coming of age stories aren't just for teenagers. Exploring the fine line between being a grown up and being a kid, MISS STEVENS looks at the moment you realize maybe you're the responsible adult in the room, and what comes after you find out you're not who you thought you'd be.

High school teacher Rachel Stevens (Lily Rabe) chaperones three of her students to a drama competition on a weekend road trip. Margot Jensen (Lili Reinhart) is the organizer. Sam (Anthony Quintal) is the gay one. Billy Mitman (Timothée Chalamet) is the troubled student. While at the convention, Miss Stevens has a fling with a married teacher and the kids have various emotional dramas.

When the kids say that they didn't know her, the movie seems set up to be a quirky sincere road trip. The ticking clock would be making it in time to the competition. The four characters needed to stay together for as long as possible. I wanted Little Miss Sunshine. This has all the scenes but the problem is that the characters aren't forced to stay together. Once they scatter, the intensity of their journey fades a little. Chalamet and Rabe have some great scenes together. Reinhart almost has a great scene with her. Quintal basically disappears. This could be better. In addition, I do have a minor question about the test. Why is Miss Stevens so far away? It probably has something to do with that first question but it doesn't make sense that the teacher isn't the one administering the test.
