The premise tells the story set in Straitlaced Princeton University an admissions officer Portia Nathan (Fey) is caught off-guard when she makes a recruiting visit to an alternative high school overseen by her former college classmate, the free-wheeling John Pressman (Rudd). Pressman has surmised that Jeremiah (Nat Wolff), his gifted yet very unconventional student, might well be the son that Portia secretly gave up for adoption many years ago.

Soon, Portia finds herself bending the rules for Jeremiah, putting at risk the life she thought she always wanted -- but in the process finding her way to a surprising and exhilarating life and romance she never dreamed of having.

“I’ve written plays with female protagonists but am embarrassed that I haven’t directed a movie whose clear lead was a woman,” confesses director Paul Weitz. “I wanted to spend time with this character, Portia Nathan.”

Weitz added, “I was very lucky to work with Tina Fey on `Admission.' Her breadth of intelligence and her lack of pretentiousness are qualities I aspire to. Reading her book Bossypants was a good cheat-sheet for directing her.”

On what drew him to the story of “Admission,” the director notes, “Thematically, I like stories of screwed-up people who think they don’t have anything to offer emotionally but who cobble together an unconventional family. It’s a fable, but one might as well tell that kind of fable as the pace of cultural change speeds up. We can either get over our germ phobia and link hands or go flying off the centrifuge.”
