WATCH: Elizabeth Olsen, Richard Jenkins and Josh Radnor Talk Reading, Writing, Romance At Liberal Arts Premiere
May-December romances "can be creepy" says Richard Jenkins, who's part of the cast of Josh Radnor's Liberal Arts, a movie about what might more appropriately might be termed a May-October romance on a college campus. In this particular case, Jenkins adds, "it isn't." The carefully groomed Radnor, who you may recognize from the TV sitcom How I Met Your Mother plays a guy in his 30s who goes back to his alma mater — the movie is set at Kenyon College in Ohio which Radnor actually attended — for a professor's retirement party and ends up falling for a much younger student there played by Elizabeth Olsen.
Movieline pal Grace Randolph talked to Radnor, Olsen and the always excellent Jensen about the fundamental of love at the Quintessentially-sponsored New York premiere of the film on Monday. Check out her report below. After the screening, premiere goers headed to Sons of Essex on the Lower East Side of Manhattan to engage in some college style drinking.
