Movie Info

A gifted high-school student flubs her college admissions interviews for the most unexpected reasons in this independent coming-of-age drama. Cynical, world-weary Evie (Lauren Ambrose) is more interested in taking care of her family than getting into the Ivy League institutions for which she seems destined. Dad Harry (John Savage) spends all his time building model trains in the basement, while workaholic mom Martha (Amy Madigan) depends on Evie to take care of her other daughter,

A simple little story of sisterly devotion.

Audience Reviews for Admissions

It starts off a little unsure of itself but gradually grows in confidence. This has a similar story but is superior to, and pre-dates, "Proof". There's a neat twist towards the end which actually enhances the story (rather than make you go, "hang on?", like lots of other movies do). A stellar performance from Lauren Ambrose, and Fran Kranz is also good. A very good way to spend 84 mins of your time. If you get the DVD, whatever you do, don't watch the trailer first, as it practically gives away every revelation.
