March 12, 2013

Several years ago, I read, and loved, Admission, by Jean Hanff Korelitz so I was very excited to see they’ve made a movie from the book.  I’m even more excited to have an Admission prize pack to give to one of my readers, thanks to Focus Features.  The movie comes out on March 22 and stars Tina Fey and Paul Rudd and is sure to be a hit.  I already have plans to see it with a friend.

About the movie:

Tina Fey and Paul Rudd 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.

Release Date: March 22

Genre: Comedy

Starring: Tina Fey, Paul Rudd, Michael Sheen, Wallace Shawn, Gloria Reuben, Nat Wolff, Traveris Spears, Lily Tomlin

Directed By: Paul Weitz (“About a Boy,” “Being Flynn,” “In Good Company”)

    I’ve seen the movie previews, but it wasn’t until I read your post that I remembered I have the book on my shelf!
