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.

At Middleton is not a plain vanilla romantic comedy: it is intergenerational, critical and philosophical
The mother daughter resemblance is in a way haunting because the daughter is so compelling, yet so young. I found myself spellbound by her eyes and her whole facial expression and body language to establish a mother- daughter tension and young impatient ambition as interesting as the romance between two fifty year-old's married to someone other than present company. Andy Garcia is perfectly cast and appealing to follow as he and this opinionated broad clash and fall in love with their opposite type. This a a movie about life portrayed as extremely attractive yet farcical. It is pure entertainment that wins over an audience within minutes. It dares to confront the real and possibly dull or difficult with the fun, funny, and fanciful and a real good slap in the face which echoes I needed that. Why give it a 10? Because it never missed a beat.
