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.

A genuinely touching story about falling into love told elegantly
I usually shun writing reviews here or anywhere else, but this film is really well written and acted. I am surprised with the 6.8 score, for I believe it should be at least of 8.5.Firstly, the combination of Vera Fermiga acting as the mother of taissa, who is, I believe her youngest sister in real life is smart and interesting, and there is this natural chemistry between the two. Andy Garcia, manages to pull off, in my opinion, one of his best performances on screen. I also loved that campus was a very dominant participant in the film, long shots, the use of natural light, and campus life in general helped in believing that, such a love story could actually occur in just a few hours of roaming the campus lawn. If you are trying to decide whether to watch this film or not, then go watch it, I thoroughly enjoyed it and I hope this tips the balance for you in its favor.
