Story


It's not only teenagers who find themselves when they go off to college. Two brilliant actors best known for dramatic roles join forces in a romantic romp, and they have a ball. Vera Farmiga and Andy Garcia play strangers who meet while escorting their teen children to campus-tour day at a mythical college named Middleton (the film is in part a hilarious parody of American college life).

Farmiga unleashes her comedic skills as Edith, a shockingly honest character who's so far out at the end of her rope that she can't take anything seriously. Garcia, in spectacles and bow tie, plays George, a hyper-fastidious heart surgeon so self-controlled that he insists on backing into parking slots. They clash immediately, ditch the tour and through a series of escapades find themselves sliding helplessly into love and something far more than they ever imagined.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..although At Middleton shows maturity in steering clear of a cliche ending, it doesn't compel an audience to worry about what will become of George and Edith. Having spent a day with then, we're not that interested..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]
“..none of this is particularly innovative, although Garcia and the elder Farmiga develop a nice spark and a gentle humor in their characters' stolen day together..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]
