Academy Award nominee Paul Weitz (About a Boy) directs this comedy/drama about Portia Nathan (Tina Fey – 30 Rock), an admissions officer at Princeton University. Evaluating thousands of hopeful college students, the exceedingly bright and driven Nathan lives her life by the book. Visiting a New Hampshire high school submitting applicants, Portia is caught off guard when its co-founder John Halsey (Paul Rudd – This is 40) turns out to have attended college with her. She is floored when reminded of the son she gave up for adoption, whom she now realizes may be one of John’s students. As Portia’s emotions surge, she finds her life turned upside down and begins to bend the rules of admission – in the hopes of getting her son on the best path while perhaps righting her own as well.
