Admission

admissionAfter seeing the trailers, I settled myself in for a fun Rom Com.  While there is a little Rom and more than a little Com, this movie is so much more than that.

The official synopsis:

Tina Fey (30 Rock) and Paul Rudd (This is 40) are paired for the first time on-screen in Admission, the new comedy 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 headed by her former college classmate, the freewheeling 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.

This movie hit a little too close to home.  Some of you know my story and some of you don’t, I’m not going into it here.  I found myself a puddle of tears in the middle of a private screening room with only 10 people in it.  I am certain my choked back sobs were still heard throughout the room.  If you have any links to adoption be prepared to be hit in the gut.

If you don’t have any links to adoption prepare yourself for a light hearted rom com with more com than rom.
