Liberal Arts

Director: Josh Radnor

Starring: Allison Janney, Elizabeth Olsen, Elizabeth Reaser, Josh Radnor, Michael Weston, Richard Jenkins, Zac Efron

A charming romantic film about ageing. Thirty something Jesse (Josh Radnor) meets and clicks with Zibby (Elizabeth Olsen), a 19 year old student when he goes to the retirement celebrations of his favourite college professor Peter Hoberg (Richard Jenkins). Meantime Jesse still has a crush on one of his old lecturers, an elegant older woman called Prof Judith Fairfield (Allison Janney); and Hoberg becomes irked when he realises Jesse is coming up to college regularly but not to see him. All the major characters are having issues with their age and stage in life but as relationships develop they all grow up one way or another. The movie is funny.
