Andy Garcia, Vera Farmiga to star in “Admissions” romcom

PanARMENIAN.Net - Andy Garcia and Vera Farmiga are set to star in indie romantic comedy “Admissions,” which Garcia will also produce through his CineSon Productions, Deadline reported.

“Admissions” centers on a once-in-a-lifetime relationship that develops between two strangers over the course of a single day. Farmiga portrays Edith, a free-spirited mom taking her driven daughter Audrey on a walking tour of a beautiful small college. Garcia plays buttoned-up heart surgeon George, who’s taking his son Conrad on the same tour. Failing comically to connect with their respective children, George and Edith decide to play “tour hooky” together for the rest of the afternoon. The result is a surprising romance and the greatest half-day of their lives.

Academy Award nominee Farmiga (“Up In The Air,” “The Departed,” “Higher Ground,” “Safe House”) has recently wrapped New Line Cinema’s “The Warren Files.” Academy Award nominee Garcia (“The Godfather: Part III”, “The Untouchables”, “Ocean’s 11”), who produced and starred in the critically-acclaimed indie hit “City Island,” toplines two soon-to-be released films—“For Greater Glory” and “The Truth.”

Rodgers’ most recent film as director, “The Response,” was short-listed for the Academy Awards as Best Live Action Short Film.
