Last week I saw a screening of the upcoming movie Admission, starring Tina Fey and Paul Rudd. They are two of my favorite actors and always make me laugh so I was pretty sure the movie would be funny. However I had no idea how moving it would also turn out to be.
In Admission, Tina Fey plays Portia, a workaholic admissions officer at Princeton University. Paul Rudd's character, John, runs an alternative high school in New Hampshire and went to the same college as Portia. And Lily Tomlin plays Portia's mother.
The movie is labeled as a romantic comedy and it is extremely funny and romantic. But I especially loved the parenting situations and lessons. There were three sets - John and his adopted 9 year old son, Portia and her mother and Portia and the high school senior from John's school, who Portia discovers is her son, and then does everything she can to try to get him into Princeton. These situations were the heart of the Admission.
Admission opens in theaters everywhere on March 22, 2013. Don't miss it.
