Five Questions for <I>Admission</i> Director Paul Weitz

Tina Fey's post-30 Rock career begins in earnest with Admission, a romantic comedy set in the high-stakes world of college admissions. Don't think that qualifies as a "high-stakes" world? Then you clearly haven't had to apply to college recently. Fey plays career-minded Princeton admissions officer Portia Nathan, who enjoys a meet cute with the personable principal of a progressive New England high school (Paul Rudd). Admission's director Paul Weitz, whose previous films include American Pie, About a Boy and last year's Being Flynn, spoke with us about collaborating with Fey and his own experience with higher education.

Tribeca’s Baby Mama Drama

Tribeca’s <I>Baby Mama</I> Drama

The Tribeca Film Festival in New York City opens tonight, bringing with it a more streamlined approach than usual. Variety says there are 25% less movies and a more centralized means of getting to them, addressing prior complaints from former attendees like me. The festival, co-created by Bobby De Niro to stimulate downtown Manhattan activity after September 11th, is in its seventh year and has the usual mix of the obscure and the mainstream. While the Tribeca Fest doesn't have the Upper West Side snootiness of the New York Film Festival, the French snobbishness of Cannes nor the ghost of Harvey Weinstein a la Sundance, it does have Travis Bickle shooting you at close range if you act up at a screening. So be on your best behavior if you go.
