Sweet, Well-Written, and Different - Review of Liberal Arts
Most people probably only know Josh Radnor as Ted from How I Met Your Mother, but while I like Josh as Ted I far more enjoy him as writer of, director of, and actor in his own movies - which there so far only are two of: Happythankyoumoreplease (2010)(my review: goo.gl/MvjHE) and now Liberal Arts (2012).

Back when I first encountered Happythankyoumoreplease I completely fell in love with it. It was, and still is, one of the best romantic comedies I've ever had the pleasure of watching. It is written so perfectly that I had huge hopes for Josh Radnor's next movie, Liberal Arts, which I got around to watch today - and I was not disappointed.

While Liberal Arts isn't quite up to the level of Happythankyoumoreplease it is still an amazing movie. There's something about this movie which I can't completely describe. It feels different from other movies - and in a very good way. The characters are likable and every single one of them makes me wonder about their backstory and how they came to be the person they are presented as in the movie. This is one of the many strengths of Josh Radnor's writing - all characters are very interesting and even characters with short time on the screen still give off a sense that there's a whole untold story behind them.

Liberal Arts is an amazing movie and one that feels very different from most things out there. It is captivating, interesting, funny, and moving. It made me think and made me feel. Definitely a movie worth watching.
