Directed by
Paul Weitz

Tina Fey stars in director Paul Weitz's comedy-drama as Portia Nathan, a struggling admissions officer working at Princeton University who's stuck in a dysfunctional relationship with an arrogant and patronising academic. While visiting high schools to vet prospective students, Portia discovers that one of the students, the quirky but endearing Jeremiah, could in fact be her biological son, who she secretly gave up for adoption when she was in college. But Jeremiah's not the only one attracting Portia's attention. Enter head teacher and progressive thinker John Pressman, who takes a keen interest in both Portia and the complex situation she now finds herself in. Also starring Lily Tomlin as Portia's feminist, tough-talking, shotgun-wielding mother. Edited for content.
