With its release now on the horizon, Focus Features have debuted the first poster, and Yahoo Movies the first trailer, giving us a great first look at the film.
“Tina Fey (Date Night, 30 Rock) and Paul Rudd (I Love You Man, Knocked Up) star in Admission, the new film directed by Academy Award nominee Paul Weitz (About a Boy), about the surprising detours we encounter on the road to happiness. Straight-laced Princeton University admissions officer Portia Nathan (Fey) is caught off-guard when she makes a recruiting visit to an alternative high school overseen by her former college classmate, the free-wheeling John Pressman (Rudd). Pressman has surmised that Jeremiah (Nat Wolff), his gifted yet very unconventional student, might well be the son that Portia secretly gave up for adoption many years ago. Soon, Portia finds herself bending the rules for Jeremiah, putting at risk the life she thought she always wanted — but in the process finding her way to a surprising and exhilarating life and romance she never dreamed of having.”
Starring alongside the leading duo will be the great Michael Sheen, Wallace Shawn, Gloria Reuben, Nat Wolff, Travaris Spears, and Lily Tomlin.
Weitz is directing from a script he co-wrote with Karen Croner (One True Thing), adapting the original novel by Jean Hanff Korelitz.
Admission will be released in the US on 8th March, 2013. No word yet on when we can look forward to it here in the UK, but hopefully we’ll be seeing it arrive at around the same time. For now, here’s our first look at the film with the trailer, followed by the poster, which you can click to enlarge.
