Sitcoms are a notoriously tricky beast to handle in terms of success, simply because if a show grows enormously in popularity and critical regard, so will the cast members who feature prominently in it, therefore leading to tempting offers for them from higher-profile projects. “How I Met Your Mother” is a sterling example of such a conflict, with a breakout cast including Jason Segel, Neil Patrick Harris, and Josh Radnor, who have established major careers outside of the show, but nevertheless CBS are still confidently pushing for a new season.

While it's fairly easy (and somewhat lazy) to toss Josh Radnor into the Zach Braff category of sitcom-actor-turned-screenwriter-and-filmmaker, the association is reductive of the talents required on both the small and big screen. As the star of "How I Met Your Mother," Radnor has displayed a very different set of tools than those utilized for his debut feature "Happythankyoumoreplease." And while that Sundance Audience Award-winning film didn't quite break out the way one might expect, Radnor has soldiered on, and now, two years later, has arrived with "Liberal Arts." Starring rising actress Elizabeth Olsen, the film centers on Jesse (Radnor), a 35-year-old man who can’t leave his college life behind as he comes to grips with the responsibilities of adulthood. Olsen plays Zibby, a 19-year-old college student who falls for Jesse over their mutual love of music and literature, but their difference in age starts to get in the way as Jesse moves farther away from a hedonistic lifestyle.
