synopsis
When 14-year old genius/outcast Eli Pettifog is rejected from Harvard, he ends up at Ivy-League wannabe Whittman College. It's hate at first sight. Eli's 41-year old dorm mate Leo a formerly serious gambler whose world has imploded, has dropped out of life to enroll in college. This odd duo becomes unlikely friends. Avenging his rejection, Eli commandeers Whittman's perennial loser Collegiate Mastermind Team, leading them seemingly single-handed to the championship, against inevitably powerhouse Harvard. Meanwhile, Leo's estranged daughter Sophie shows up for a campus tour, throwing Leo's collegiate world upside down. Love, friendship and a rag-tag family complicate their academic dreams.

Over the last fourteen years Billy has directed over 200 commercials and 11 short films. His commercial budgets have exceeded $35 million. He has developed a reputation for inventive, beautifully stylized comedy.
