Description: Founder of an American primary school, Joseph Brill has yet to discover the student extraordinary enough to be worthy of his special curriculum. This desire for a prodigy, fueled at mid-life by his own dissatisfactions, leads Brill to admit an unexceptional student because of her mother, a famous philosopher. Looking for the mother's genius in the daughter, Brill misinterprets both the child's nature and the mother's love for her, a failure of vision that haunts him and is clearly exposed years later.
