Fresh off his directorial debut HappyThankYouMorePlease, which premiered at Sundance to highly positive reviews, How I Met Your Mother star Josh Radnor is planning on stepping behind the camera once more for the indie film Liberal Arts. Radnor also wrote the flick and THR reports that he will star alongside Sundance darling Elizabeth Olsen. The younger sister of Mary-Kate and Ashley, Elizabeth broke out in a big way at this year’s Sundance Film Festival with her performance in Martha Marcy May Marlene.

Liberal Arts tells the story of a 35-year-old whose yearning for his glory days of college is intensified when he strikes up a romance with a 19-year-old college student over a shared love of music and literature. The man is busy coming to terms with his age and responsibilities, while the young girl’s immaturity puts a strain on their relationship. The whole thing kind of reminds me of 2006’s underrated The Last Kiss starring Zach Braff. Radnor will shoot the film this spring during his hiatus from How I Met Your Mother. Olsen is currently filming Red Lights with Robert De Niro, Sigourney Weaver and Cillian Murphy.
