Trailer Watch: Andy Garcia and Vera Farmiga Star as Two Parents Who Connect on a College Campus in the Romcom, 'AT MIDDLETON'

With all the awards frenzy and attention given to heavier titles at the top of the year, we often see a lot more lightweight films especially in the weeks leading up to Valentine's Day. Anchor Bay Films is jumping on the bandwagon with their latest contribution, AT MIDDLETON starring Vera Farmiga and Andy Garcia (in select theaters this Friday). The film, which has an Enough Said/Before Sunset vibe, depicts an unexpected romance between two strangers who meet while on a college tour with their kids. More on the film after the jump:

Academy Award nominees Andy Garcia (Ocean's 11, City Island) and Vera Farmiga (A&E's "Bates Motel", Up in the Air) star as straight-laced George and eccentric Edith, two strangers who meet on their children's campus tour at the idyllic Middleton College. Failing comically to connect with their kids, George and Edith play hooky together, ditching the official tour for a carefree adventure reminiscent of their own college years. But what begins as an afternoon of fun soon becomes a revealing and enlightening experience that will change their lives forever. A light-hearted romance for adults on the surface, At Middleton is a deeply moving portrait of roads not taken and the timelessness of youth.

Taissa Farmiga ("American Horror Story"), Spencer Lofranco (Jamesy Boy), Peter Riegert ("Dads"), and Tom Skerritt ("Picket Fences") also star in this story about what can happen on your first day of college - no matter who you are - At Middleton.

First time feature director Adam Rodgers directed the film and co-wrote the screenplay with fello newbie writer Glenn German). Watch the newest trailer:

Despite its somewhat predictable trailer, I love both Farmiga and Garcia so I'd watch  it for them.
