Film | AT MIDDLETON Andy Garcia and Vera Farmiga
Anchor Bay Films presents the feature film release of the charming romantic comedy, AT MIDDLETON, starring Academy Award® nominees Andy Garcia (The Untouchables, Godfather III, Oceans 11) and Vera Farmiga (“Bates Motel,” Up in the Air, The Departed). Directed by Adam Rodgers and co-written by Rodgers and Glenn German, AT MIDDLETON will be in theaters, On Demand, and on iTunes on January 31, 2014.
Yahoo! Movies film critic and Contributing Editor Thelma Adams calls AT MIDDLETON “a funny, joyous look at unexpected love set on a college campus with humorous and touching performances from Vera Farmiga and Andy Garcia. A romcom for adults.” “An absolute gem,” adds Kris Anger of MovieBuzzers.com.
In AT MIDDLETON, Andy Garcia and Vera Farmiga 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.
The film’s supporting cast includes Vera Farmiga’s real-life sister, Taissa Farmiga (“American Horror Story”), Spencer Lofranco (Jamesy Boy), Peter Riegert (“Dads,” Animal House), Tom Skerritt (“Picket Fences,” A River Runs Through It), Nicholas Braun (The Perks of Being a Wallflower), and newcomers Daniella Garcia-Lorido and Stephen Borrello.
A true crowd-pleaser, AT MIDDLETON has played to packed houses at numerous film festivals this year, including the Seattle International Film Festival, Woodstock Film Festival, Mill Valley Film Festival, Austin Film Festival, Montreal International Film Festival, Boston Film Festival, and Starz! Denver Film Festival.
Adam Rodgers directed from a script co-written with Glenn German. German also produced alongside Garcia through Garcia’s production company CineSon and Sig Libowitz under his Look at the Moon banner. Raul Pedraza executive produced along with Brad Harland of North by Northwest Entertainment, Ellen Wander of Film Bridge International, and Sonya Lunsford (The Help). Film Bridge handled international distribution. The film score was composed by multiple-Grammy® award-winner Arturo Sandoval.
