Filled with romance and humour, writer, director and star Josh Radnor (How I Met Your Mother) presents Liberal Arts. Featuring star-studded cast including rising star Elizabeth Olsen, Academy Award ® nominee Richard Jenkins and Emmy Award ® winner Allison Janney, the film is a heart-warming reminder that sometimes students make the best teachers. The story follows newly single 35-year-old Jesse Fisher. Uninspired by his job and worried that his best days are behind him, no matter how much he buries his head in a book life keeps pulling him back. When his favourite college professor invites him to campus to speak at his retirement dinner, Jesse jumps at the chance. He is prepared for the nostalgia of the dining halls and dorm rooms, the parties and poetry seminars; what he doesn?t see coming is Zibby (Elizabeth Olsen) a beautiful, precocious, classical-music-loving student. Zibby awakens scary, exciting, feelings of possibility and connection that Jesse thought he had buried forever.

I loved this film! It's a little gem. Such a well-acted, inspiring, moving and touching production. Josh Radnor (who not only starred in "Liberal Arts", but also wrote and directed the film) - I applaud you!

"Liberal Arts" is an unlikely love story that starts uninvolving but gradually builds up dramatic tension (and viewer's interest). It's a film about youth, about growing up and getting old (and staying young!). It's an insightful, tender and charming three-generational analysis that is anything but uninspiring.

I recommend!

This film is absolutely wonderful. It manages to be at once very very funny, in a WoodyAllen-ish kind of way, very witty, intellectually stimulating and extremely moving. In my opinion Josh Radnor, whose film it is in more ways than one, is a genius. The acting at all levels is quite outstanding, even the smaller parts. (Watch out for Allison Janney's 'Professor Fairfield' and Zac Effron's 'Nat'.) I came across the film completely by accident on a long flight from the Gulf and then I watched it twice, in the course of my journey.

This is a delightful and charming film about college and the yearning for youth. Josh Radnor has written a lovely script with several moving characters. But it's Elizabeth Olsen who elevates to movie from average to very good. Her portrait of the 19 year old sophomore Zibby is awesome. Zibby is the perfect girl in any mans dreams and still believable. Zibby is a an old soul in a young body. But now and then her inexperience with life shows. A truely great acting performance by Elizabeth Olsen. Watch out for her in the future.
