EDITH (Vera Farmiga) is a strong-willed, free-spirited and successful business woman who’s taking her 18 year-old daughter AUDREY on a tour of potential colleges. GEORGE (Andy Garcia) is a buttoned-up heart surgeon who’s taking his 18 year-old son, CONRAD, on a similar tour. Their paths cross at Middleton College, nestled in the picturesque Connecticut countryside.
And while we suspect at the outset that this will be the kids’ story, it quickly becomes clear that George and Edith are the heart of this movie. MIDDLETON is the story of two people who, through a remarkable, unexpected connection, are able to glimpse the potential that true romance can offer. As Edith and George eventually realize, in ways both hilarious and heartbreaking, their adventure proves to be “the greatest half-day” of their lives.
So…nobody commits suicide?
