Nixon criticized Andrew Cuomo, current governor of NY, for his lack of progress within the issues surrounding education.

While the film bears similarities to The Graduate, the narrative also attempts a nuanced inspection of the relationships between Webb's love interests (Beckinsale and Clemons), and between his parents (Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon and Pierce Brosnan).

"I can not!" she grinned, showing her interest.

Independent.ie reports that when asked about whether she had thought about a career in politics she said, "People have talked to me about it. People have talked to me before".

A video of her appearance on the morning show was sent to reporters via email by Billy Easton, the executive director for the Alliance of Quality Education, which has pressed Cuomo and state lawmakers to honor a lawsuit that requires equitable education funding.

Actress Cynthia Nixon played coy Tuesday on whether she is actually considering a Democratic primary challenge in 2018 against Gov. Cuomo.

Other potential Democratic challengers include Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner and former state senator Terry Gipson who represented parts of Duchess and Putnam counties.

But she argued that the gap between the state's 100 richest schools and 100 poorest schools is $10,000 per pupil.

Nixon, who has been described as a liberal activist, has criticized Cuomo's policies in the past. The $26 billion in state aid to schools is the most in NY history. "We've got a real problem on our hands in NY state".

"New York is way behind the rest of the country when it comes to inequity between rich and poor in our public schools, and Cynthia is making that an issue that needs to be addressed".
