"Admission" Stars Production Starring Tina Fey, Paul Rudd, Michael Sheen, Lily Tomlin 


Focus Features has announced that production of the film "Admission" begins this week in New York and New Jersey directed by Academy Award nominee, Paul Weitz. (Paul Weitz talks about "Being Flynn" right here)

The dramedy stars Tina Fey, Paul Rudd, Michael Sheen, Gloria Reuben, Wallace Shawn, and Lily Tomlin. The script is based on Jean Hanff Korelitz’s 2009 novel of the same name and adapted by Karen Croner and Weitz.

The plot revolves around Fey's Portia Nathan, an admissions officer at Princeton University. Here's more on the intriguing plotline:

Evaluating thousands of hopeful college students, the exceedingly bright and driven Portia lives her life by the book, both at work and in her relationship with a faculty colleague, Mark (Mr. Sheen). Visiting an experimental New Hampshire high school submitting applicants, Portia is caught off guard when its co-founder John Halsey (Mr. Rudd) turns out to have attended college with her. She is then floored when reminded of the life-altering decision that she made while still a student herself; she had a son, who she gave up for adoption, and who she now realizes may be one of John’s students, the precocious misfit Jeremiah. As Portia’s emotions surge forth, she finds her life turning upside down in embarrassing ways and begins to bend the admissions rules – in the hopes of getting Jeremiah on the best path while perhaps righting her own as well.


Sounds like a winner!

Here's what Focus CEO, James Schamus, said about "Admissions":

“Everyone at Focus is delighted to be continuing our collaboration with Paul Weitz, a truly humane filmmaker. As always, Paul has joined with an amazing cast, for a story that promises not only laughs and tears, but the deep pleasures of understanding and empathy.”
