Liberal Arts

In just just over one month, the Sundance favorite Liberal Arts will hit theaters, but we've yet to see a single trailer. That changes today as the sophomore directing effort of Josh Radnor (star of "How I Met Your Mother" whose feature debut was HappyThankYouMorePlease) has debuted a new trailer showcasing his leading man hat alongside the ever increasingly talented Elizabeth Olsen. While I wholly enjoyed the film at Sundance (read my review here), I found it to be a little trite with its fortune cookie wisdom at times. But the lighthearted indie still delivers, and marks a great film-stealing performance by Zac Efron. Enjoy!

Here's the official trailer for Josh Radnor's Liberal Arts, updated from IFC (found via The Film Stage):

Newly single, 35, and uninspired by his job, Jesse (Radnor) worries that his best days are behind him. But no matter how much he buries his head in a book, life keeps pulling Jesse back. When his favorite college professor invites him to speak at his retirement dinner, Jesse jumps at the chance. He is prepared for the nostalgia, what he doesn’t see coming is Zibby (Olsen)—a beautiful, precocious, classical-music-loving sophomore. Zibby awakens scary, exciting, long-dormant feelings of possibility and connection that Jesse thought he buried forever. Liberal Arts is written & directed by actor/filmmaker Josh Radnor (star of "How I Met Your Mother" and writer/director of 2010 Sundance Audience winner HappyThankYouMorePlease) and also stars Richard Jenkins, Zac Efron and Allison Janney. Arrives in limited theaters September 14th.

This atually looks pretty good. Not the biggest fan of Radnor in "How (many women I banged before) I met your mother", but I'll give this a shot

looks like a awkward man fantasy, back to college to bang the hot ones, "i'm an older man now, i make up for all my failings with mystique and life experience"

WHERE'S ZAC EFRON??? But seriously, at least Radnor knows how to surround himself with quality talent. Could be good.
