Ted Swenson is a once-acclaimed author who teaches writing at a small liberal arts college. Though his marriage to Sherrie is comfortable, he finds himself drowning in discontent, stuffy departmental dinners at which he drinks too much, smug colleagues whom he dislikes yet fears he resembles, and an endless stream of students who are as untalented as they are unteachable. But when a new pupil, Angela Argo, shows promise Ted focuses on nurturing her career, and she appears more than willing to devote the one-on-one time required. Basking in Angela's youth, talent and admiration, whilst she benefits from Ted's wisdom, experience and connections, it's only a matter of time before lines are crossed… Submission is a biting morality play about lust, ambition, power, and living in a world where scandal is just as likely to make a reputation as destroy it. Starring Stanley Tucci, Addison Timlin & Kyra Sedgwick.
