Oscar winners Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts reunite for a dramatic
comedy about how the hard knocks from today's recession inspire one
everyday guy to undergo a personal reinvention: Larry Crowne.

Until he was downsized, affable, amiable Larry Crowne (Hanks) was a
superstar team leader at the big-box company where he's worked since
his time in the Navy. Underwater on his mortgage and unclear on what
to do with his suddenly free days, Larry heads to his local college to
start over. There he becomes part of a colorful community of
outcasts, also-rans and the overlooked all trying to find a better
future for themselves...often moving around town in a herd of scooters.
In his public-speaking class, Larry develops an unexpected crush on
his teacher Mercedes Tainot (Roberts), who has lost as much passion
for teaching as she has for her husband.

The simple guy who has every reason to think his life has stalled will
come to learn an unexpected lesson: when you think everything worth
having has passed you by, you just might discover your reason to live.
