NHFF Alum Josh Radnor’s “Liberal Arts” Gets Picked Up By IFC films
If Josh Radnor’s name doesn’t sound familiar, you’d definitely recognize his face, he is most commonly known for playing Ted Mosby on the CBS Television Series How I Met Your Mother. His directorial debut happythankyoumoreplease (he also wrote and starred) came to NHFF in 2010, and his latest film Liberal Arts premiered at Sundance this year. Radnor writes, directs and stars again in the dram-com about a listless 35-year-old who returns to his alma mater to speak at his professor’s retirement dinner and falls for a sophomore at the school. It received a standing ovation after its first screening, and later that week was picked up in a 7-figure deal with indie distributor IFC films. Theatrical release dates have not been announced… yet (excepting a possibly fake Australia release date in late September via IMDb). But keep it on your radar, Radnor is a name in acting, writing and directing that is sure to stick around progressing with every meaningful piece of layered dialogue.
