In the library Vera Farmiga does a gesture from the movie "Psycho". Actually she is playing Norman Bates mother in the series "Bates Motel". See more »
Dr. Roland Emerson claims he cannot be Audrey's advisor because he will be on sabbatical for four years. No university would grant anyone a four-year sabbatical. He might take a leave of absence for that length of time (as an academic might do to serve in government), but someone would have to be hired to teach his classes and perform other academic duties during that time period.

If you liked the Before Sunrise trilogy you will love this. A movie I liked much more then expected. Romantic and real.
"By the time the afternoon bell rings you will have fallen in love. I guarantee it." George Hartman (Garcia) and his son arrive at Middleton College for a tour. While there he meets Edith Martin (Farmiga) who is doing the same with her daughter. The two begin talking and soon strike up a fast friendship that over the course of the day evolves into something that makes them question everything. I'll start by saying I wasn't really excited about watching this. I expected a basic love story with out much substance. What I did find was I liked it much more then I expected. While the movie is really nothing more then two people talking for an hour and a half it was actually entertaining to watch. The best way to really describe what happens in this is to compare it to the Before Sunrise trilogy. This has the same feel. Two people meet and we watch their relationship grow over a few hours. The most entertaining aspect of the movie is watching how the roles of the children and parents switch. The parents have the college experiences and the kids stress about everything else. Overall, if you liked the Before Sunrise movies then you will like this as well. Better then I expected, it was very romantic and a very real love story. I give this a B+.
