Mrs. Washington Goes to Smith!
Hallmark just wrapped up production of a movie about a 40-something woman who returns to college late in life. And not just any college, but Smith College! (And it’s really called that, not Catamount College or some other pseudonym.) The main character, played by the fabulous Cybill Shepherd (most recently of The L Word) enrolls as an Ada Comstock Scholar.
According to the press release:
College takes some getting used to for Alice who looks and feels a little out of place, showing up at her dorm’s first social in a designer dress and high heels. And due to a mix-up in room assignments, Alice gets a surprise roommate: Zoe Burns (Corri English, “The Bedford Diaries”), a 20-year-old transfer student who rides a Vespa and is constantly changing the color of her spiky hair. Neither one is impressed with the other.
The movie is set to be shown on the Hallmark Channel in August. Has anyone heard where it was filmed? I wonder if any Smith buildings will show up on screen…
