Liberal Arts

The Sundance selected sophomore effort Liberal Arts from director Josh Radnor hits limited theaters next week, and the first trailer has already shown off the filmmaker's penchant for charming comedy behind the camera and in front of it as the film's star. Now a new UK trailer goes the extra mile with the charm as it further reveals the romance that blossoms between a somewhat jaded college admissions counselor and a precocious university sophomore played wonderfully by Elizabeth Olsen. In addition, Richard Jenkins and Allison Janney deserve some love for their supporting roles in a film that deserves to be seen. Watch!

Here's the newest UK trailer for Josh Radnor's Liberal Arts, originally from Empire:

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.
