Admission Trailer And Poster

It’s quite a ways off, and there’s something about Tina Fey films that give them a certain feel that is perhaps not always seen in the most positive light, but the new trailer for Admission looks rather good. With a great supporting cast, and Paul Weitz at the helm, this is one that could take off in a big way.

Apparently aiming to deliver a worthwhile story with the comedic expectations of Fey and Paul Rudd, I have high hopes. Plus, if Wallace Shawn is in your film, I’m your man.

Take a look at this one, and let me know what you think. 

ADMISSION

In Theatres March 8, 2013

Starring Tina Fey, Paul Rudd, Michael Sheen, Wallace Shawn, Gloria Reuben, Nat Wolff, Lily Tomlin

Directed by Paul Weitz (“About a Boy,” “Being Flynn,” “In Good Company”)

Written by Karen Croner (“One True Thing”) and Paul Weitz; Based on the novel by Jean Hanff Korelitz

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.
