what the others say
"As a comedy of manners, Liberal Arts is perfectly likeable.But you might find its talky touchy-feeliness on the smug side."
"Strong writing, great performances (Olsen is the real deal) and a touching, upbeat tale for the big-brained and big-hearted."
"An amusing, thoughtful romcom about love, literature and coming of age. Whatever age."
