Straitlaced Princeton University admissions officer Portia Nathan (Tina Fey) is caught off-guard when she makes a recruiting visit to an alternative high school overseen by her former college classmate, the freewheeling John Pressman (Paul Rudd). Pressman has surmised that Jeremiah (Nat Wolff), his gifted yet very unconventional student, might well be the son that Portia secretly gave up for adoption many years ago. Soon, Portia finds herself bending the rules for Jeremiah, putting at risk the life she thought she always wanted -- but in the process finding her way to a surprising and exhilarating life and romance she never dreamed of having.

Did You Know?
When Portia falls asleep in her office and is awakened by her boss knocking on the door (interrupting her dream about Jeremiah), she awakens with tousled hair and a "denied" stamp imprinted on her cheek. Her mascara is still in place, but when she opens the door to talk to her boss, the mascara on her right eye is running. Then, in the next shot (right after she closes the door) her mascara is not running or smudged and is intact again. See more
