Vera Farmiga And Andy Garcia To Find Romance In Admissions

After drawing notice with his award-winning film short The Response, Nyu Grad school graduate Adam Rodgers has gone into pre-production for his first feature film, Admissions. To be clear, this is not the Paul Rudd-Tina Fey vehicle. That's called Admission. And though both comedies are set on a college campus, Rodgers' Admissions doesn't center on the school's staff.

Vera Farmiga & Andy Garcia To Get Romantic In Adam Rodgers' 'Admissions'

27 April 2012 6:18 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

After a starring role in an adaptation of "A View From The Bridge" fell apart last year, Vera Farmiga's latest run of films have been dominated by supporting turns ("Source Code," "Goats" and "Safe House"), although she did get her directorial debut "Higher Ground" into theaters last year as well.

The 2010 Oscar nominee is set to kick back in leading lady status now and will star opposite Andy Garcia in Adam Rodgers' romantic dramedy "Admissions." Not to be confused with the upcoming Paul Weitz comedy titled "Admission" (whose title isn't pluralised), Rodgers' film is a tale that is part of the increasingly popular 24-hour romancers centering on "a once-in-a-lifetime relationship that develops between two strangers over the course of a single day."

Farmiga plays Edith, a free-spirited mom taking her driven daughter Audrey on a walking tour of a beautiful small collegewho meets Garcia's buttoned-up heart surgeon George, »
