Storyline Heading
Newly single, 35, and uninspired by his job, Jesse Fisher 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 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, a beautiful, precocious, classical-music-loving sophomore. Zibby awakens scary, exciting, long-dormant feelings of possibility and connection that Jesse thought he had buried forever.

DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Drama - This comedy aimed at twenty- and thirty-somethings is a big showcase for writer-director-star Josh Radnor. Fans of him from his TV work as well as that of co-star Elizabeth Olsen will have plenty to savor. Zac Efron only has a tiny role. Language and adult subject matter make the film inappropriate for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Liberal Arts is a parfait - a light, enjoyable concoction that goes down easily but doesn't linger.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good It's the kind of film that appeals powerfully to me; to others, maybe not so much.

USA Today Full Review
Very Good Liberal Arts is a sharp comedy about ideas and stages of personal development that reminds audiences that emotional bonds can be forged without resorting to predictability or cliche.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Bookish and newly single Jesse Fisher (Josh Radnor) is a university admissions counselor in his mid-thirties living in New York City who returns to his Ohio alma mater for a retirement dinner honoring Peter Hoburg (Richard Jenkins), his favorite English professor.

A chance meeting on campus with 19-year-old Zibby (Elizabeth Olsen), a precocious undergrad who loves classical music, improv and Twilight, awakens in Jesse long-dormant feelings of possibility and connection. The pair strikes up a long-distance epistolary romance, prompting Jesse to return to campus for another visit.

Although Zibby appears beyond her years, the age-difference between the budding paramours weights heavily on Jesse, who is torn between moving forward in life, and holding on to the indelible memories of his own university years.
