New Liberal Arts Trailer Online
Josh Radnor, Elizabeth Olsen and college

No, this isn't the story of how Ted really meet the mother of his kids. Josh Radnor, star of US sitcom How I Met Your Mother and already a feature director with Happythankyouplease, is back directing, writing and starring in Liberal Arts, which arrives in October - and we have a new trailer here.

 

The film sees Radnor play a newly single guy in his mid-30s who heads back to his old college at the invitation of his former teacher (Richard Jenkins) to speak at the latter's retirement dinner. There, he meets Zibby (Elizabeth Olsen), who's "a beautiful, precocious, classical-music-loving sophomore" - and starts to form a connection for the first time in ages.

Liberal Arts premiered at Sundance earlier this year and hits UK screens on October 5. It also stars Allison Janney, which is never a bad thing.
