Liberal Arts – Present Romance Gets In The Way Of Future

Movie Plot

He meets a few other people who makes him wonder whether what he is doing with Zibby ..

My Review

Some people, myself included, can identify with Jesse. Stuck in the dead-end job that you don’t particularly enjoy. Kind of crummy life routine and just got dumped. Go back to college, a familiar and loving environment and meet a unique girl whom you feel connected to. Sounds like a good recipe no? 😉 This movie is charming in its way. It is not particularly harsh on the main character, but gently guides him through the highs and lows. Josh Radnor does a good job as Jesse. He also wrote and directed it. Warning, after watching this flick, you might have pangs of college nostalgia.
