Admission Details


Tina Fey and Paul Rudd star in director Paul Weitz's comedy about an uptight Princeton admissions officer who encounters a teenage prodigy who may be her long-lost son while recruiting students from an alternative high school. Years ago, Portia Nathan (Fey) quietly placed her newborn son up for adoption. Now she's got a great career recruiting students for Princeton University. Then, one day, she receives an unexpected call from her free-spirited college classmate John Pressman (Rudd), who runs an alternative high school that's home to some very gifted students. One such student is Jeremiah (Nat Wolff), whom John believes could be the son that Portia gave up for adoption back in her youth. Meanwhile, as Portia puts her career in jeopardy by altering Jeremiah's transcript, an unexpected romance begins to blossom. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
