Liberal Arts (2012) Rated PG-13

Liberal ArtsA 35-year-old guy gets invited back to his college Alma Mater for a professor’s retirement party. Once there he reminisces about his college life and meets a girl whom he contemplates a relationship with. Starring Josh Radnor, Elizabeth Olsen, Richard Jenkins, Allison Janney, Elizabeth Reaser, Zac Efron

I love Josh Radnor and I enjoyed his last film Happythankyoumoreplease but this movie left me wanting. Although, it does touch on the feelings that we all have as we grow older. I understand those feelings but I questioned Radnor’s character’s relationship with his professor. Who is that chummy with their professor? I don’t know anyone that chummy with a former professor. It was almost like they were related and not strangers. I don’t even think they were friends. They just knew each other from school. Sorry, but that bugged me throughout the film. It’s a film that leaves you pointless.

  1. You should focus your review around a larger argument, such as why the film works or fails to work and what are both the successful and unsuccessful elements. Make sure that you have a major thesis and a set of supporting arguments. A good film review uses scenes and dialogue from the film to support its larger argument. Moreover, a good review focuses on whether and how a movie works and whether the reviewer recommends it. Finally, a good reviewer shows how a movie works both psychologically, emotionally, intellectually, and even spiritually.
