SYNOPSIS: At Middleton subverts all expectations of a standard college romance, focusing on the bittersweet adult years of two unsatisfied parents who come together in a single afternoon of magic. Vera Farmiga and Andy Garcia star in Adam Rodgers’s romantic dramedy as eccentric mother, Edith, and straight-laced father, George, two strangers who come to life in one another’s company and decide to play hooky on their respective children’s college tour. While At Middleton initially seems to follow the college hopefuls; Edith and George quickly steal the focus of what becomes a revealing and enlightening experience for the two adults. The parents come together despite their opposing temperaments in an afternoon reminiscent of their lost youth, ditching the textbook tour for a crash course in the pursuit of passion.
Shot in picturesque eastern Washington at Gonzaga University and Washington State University, At Middleton is sure to steal the hearts of all ages in its portrait of the timelessness of romance and youth. –Chandra Knotts
Baltimore-born, L.A. resident Adam Rodgers loved everything about filming At Middleton (which he directed and co-wrote with Glenn German). His prior directorial effort, The Response, which he made with producing partner Sig Libowitz, was short-listed for an Academy Award (Best Live Action Short) and was invited to screen before Congress and the Pentagon.
