Story


Tina Fey (Date Night, 30 Rock) and Paul Rudd (I Love You Man, Knocked Up) star in "Admission", the new film directed by Academy Award nominee Paul Weitz (About a Boy), about the surprising detours we encounter on the road to happiness. Straight-laced Princeton University admissions officer Portia Nathan (Fey) is caught off-guard when she makes a recruiting visit to an alternative high school overseen by her former college classmate, the free-wheeling John Pressman (Rudd). Pressman has surmised that Jeremiah (Nat Wolff), his gifted yet very unconventional student, might well be the son that Portia secretly gave up for adoption many years ago. Soon, Portia finds herself bending the rules for Jeremiah, putting at risk the life she thought she always wanted - but in the process finding her way to a surprising and exhilarating life and romance she never dreamed of having.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..if the cast weren't so endearing, her actions could easily sour an audience on the whole experience, and "Admission" digs itself a hole only an ensemble this appealing can escape..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]
“..but faced with the bad reviews and blah word of mouth they're about to get, the producers of "Admission" would take that in a heartbeat..”
by Andrew O'Hehir [Salon.com]
“..tangle with the idea that this socially inept, economically disadvantaged, extraordinarily bright kid is just what the Princeton student body needs-and what the admissions system guarantees Princeton is unlikely to get..”
by Stephanie Zacharek [Village Voice]
