Tina Fey Talks About Admission

Admission PosterTina Fey stars opposite Paul Rudd in the comedy movie Admission opening in theaters on March 22, 2013. Fey plays a college admissions officer who holds the scholastic fate of eager young learners in her hands. Rudd plays a high school administrator who tries to convince her to admit one very special young man.
In this interview video courtesy of Focus Features, Fey discusses the appeal of Admission, her character’s relationship with Paul Rudd’s, and working with Lily Tomlin who plays her mom. She also talks about working with director Paul Weitz and what audiences will get out of the film.
The Plot:
Straight-laced Princeton University admissions officer Portia Nathan (Fey) lives by the book, both at work and at home. But Portia 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.
