Smart People

Professor Lawrence Wetherhold might be imperiously brilliant, monumentally self-possessed and an intellectual giant - but when it comes to solving the conundrums of love and family, he's as downright flummoxed as the next guy. His teenaged daughter is an acid-tongued overachiever who follows closely in dad's misery-loving footsteps, and his adopted, preposterously ne'er-do-well brother has perfected the art of freeloading. A widower who can't seem to find passion in anything anymore, it seems Lawrence is sleepwalking through a very stunted middle age. When his brother shows up unexpectedly for an extended stay at just about the same time as he accidently encounters a former student, the circumstances cause him to stir from his deep, deep freeze, with often comical, sometimes heartbreaking consequences for himself and everyone around him. Dennis Quaid, Sarah Jessica Parker, Thomas Haden Church, Ellen Page, Ashton Holmes. R for language, brief teen drug and alcohol use, and for some sexuality/94m/S/Miramax
