Set in the land of academia, a place where both Lawrence and Vanessa have taken refuge and plunged themselves into as escape from the external world. In spite of their high IQs, both father and daughter are equally clueless when it comes to navigating relationships. This becomes obvious as Vanessa develops a lineblurring relationship with her uncle, and Lawrence stumbles in romancing his doctor. If Vanessa wants a shot at happiness and Lawrence wants to make things work in his love life, both will have to adopt new attitudes or risk further alienation.

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: Despite its sharp cast and a few laughs, Smart People is too thinly plotted to fully resonate.
Intelligent, mature film with some shortcomings.
