Fifteen years ago, screenwriter Ray Michaels (Grant) won an Academy Award®.
As a successful, witty, sexy Englishman in Hollywood, the world was his oyster. Years later, he’s creatively washed up, divorced and broke but still very much the center of his own universe.
With no other options, he’s forced to take a job teaching screenwriting at a small college. Although he believes the work to be beneath an Oscar®-winner, he hopes to make some easy money and enjoy the favors of impressionable young co-eds.
What he doesn’t expect to find is a single mother (Tomei), a mature student who winds up teaching Ray a few hilarious and heartwarming lessons of her own.
