“Admission,” starring Tina Fey and Paul Rudd, opens March 8 and is directed by Paul Weitz (“About a Boy,” “In Good Company”).

Let’s take a look at the trailer.

Not bad. It’s a bit of a dramatic turn for Rudd (who once was Neil LaBute’s go-to guy) and Fey, though I’d like to see her play something else aside from stressed, kid-skittish career-minded women. But, hey, when that’s your forte…

Collider has a synopsis. I purged some of the PR speak.

…Straight-laced 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 free-wheeling 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.

The movie also stars Michael Sheen, Gloria Reuben, and Wallace Shawn.
