In case the title sounds familiar – Middleton is an upcoming romantic comedy from director Adam Rodgers, which had its world premiere at the Seattle International Film Festival. The movie stars Vera Farmiga and Andy Garcia as two (completely different) parents who fall in love while taking their kids on a college admissions tour. Still nothing about the official release date, but at least we have a pretty cool trailer to share with you, check it out!
Rodgers directed the whole thing from a script he co-wrote with Glenn German, which sends a quite simple message to all of us: you never know what you’ll discover on your first day at college!
In other words, Farmiga plays a strong-willed, free-spirited and successful business woman named Edith, who’s taking her 18 year-old daughter Adrey on a tour of potential colleges.
Garcia, on the other hand, stars as a buttoned-up heart surgeon named George, who’s taking his 18 year-old son, Conrad, on a similar tour.
And here’s the rest of the story:
Their paths cross at Middleton College, nestled in the picturesque Connecticut countryside. And while we suspect at the outset that this will be the kids’ story, it quickly becomes clear that George and Edith are the heart of this movie. Middleton is the story of two people who, through a remarkable, unexpected connection, are able to glimpse the potential that true romance can offer. As Edith and George eventually realize, in ways both hilarious and heartbreaking, their adventure proves to be “the greatest half-day” of their lives.
Beside the above mentioned duo, the rest of Middleton cast includes Taissa Farmiga, Spencer Lofranco, Tom Skerritt and Nicholas Braun.
