There's nothing predictable about the way the romance unfolds.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5

Liberal Arts seems aggressively cheery, determinedly lacking in negativity, and very affirming in its protagonist's masculine heroism. None of it is a surprise, and as a result, not much of it is very good, either.

Romantic comedies don't set out to change your life, but Liberal Arts does provide an easy and enjoyable study on growing up and finding contentment, whatever your age.

Liberal Arts is a resolutely vanilla-flavored concoction but still pleasant, amiable, and a little more thoughtful than your average rom-com.

Poetic justice Is served in insightful LIBERAL ARTS
July 17, 2013
An exuberant, heartfelt concoction, the kind of sunny comedy that's good for the soul.
July 10, 2013
Some of the insights are a bit simplistic but for most of the running time, the film is an enjoyable diversion.

LIBERAL ARTS never manages to turn these great performances and familiar dilemmas into something substantial.
March 14, 2013
Liberal laughs are guaranteed but memorable it ain't.

March 4, 2013
A diverting generational three-way dialogue between those barely out of their teens, those in their mid thirties and those well north of fifty.
January 15, 2013
...an enthralling sophomore effort from an almost excessively promising filmmaker...

A writer/director/star, casting himself as the guy who's irresistible to all sorts of women? Woody Allen's been pulling that trick for about 40 years.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
December 25, 2012
A warm, funny and, one imagines, rather personal film, one that's all about falling in and out of love, not just with people and places but the ideas they can sometimes embody.

"Liberal Arts" develops into a special film, less of a love story and more about the pleasures and dangers of being on both sides of a nurturing student-mentor relationship.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

Has a soap opera vibe.

he characters are interesting and, again, I really felt for the guy's dilemma whether to start a relationship with this much, much younger girl or not.

Josh Radnor is an actor who's not content to be just that.

Radnor's problem stems from his casting prowess: Jenkins, Janney and Olsen are all so pleasurably adept in their parts that the film's star suffers by comparison. Jesse needs more than Josh Radnor's glibness.

December 7, 2012
Liberal Arts is about going back in time in order to move forward. In so many moments Radnor could have taken disturbing and frustrating turns - and yet it's resistance and maturity saved it.

Has the hallmark of slow burning classic, starting deceptively uninvolving but gradually increasing in both interest and dramatic tension, with a tender emotional payoff that ripples across all the main characters
