Liberal Arts

SHARE

(2011) ★★

Sky Movies: PREMIERE Friday 3 July, 10am and 6.15pm

Bored college recruiter Josh Radnor jumps at the chance to return to his alma mater for favourite professor Richard Jenkins’ retirement do. Overwhelmed by nostalgia for the good old days, he begins a tentative ‘mentor’ relationship with teenage student Elizabeth Olsen. Ostensibly a self-deprecating study of a frustrated under-achiever, writer-director Radnor’s comedy is actually set up to show off how sensitive and attractive he is. At least it’s not as twee as his debut, Happythankyoumoreplease. But it’s just as indulgent: Liberal Arts was filmed at Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio, Radnor’s actual alma mater. File under vanity project and seek out instead Curtis Hanson’s campus dramedy Wonder Boys, with acting of real integrity by Michael Douglas and Tobey Maguire.

Certificate: 12
