Larry Crowne (played by Tom Hanks) was an all star team leader at a big box store. He had worked at the store since his time in the Navy and had become Employee of the Month eight times. When he assumes he’s being congratulated for his 9th honor, he discovers that he’s actually being let go for lack of a college education.
Behind on his mortgage and unsure of what to do with his free time, Larry enrolls in a local college to start over. He joins a group of other misfits trying to find their place who all oddly enough end up all driving scooters. Larry develops a crush on his public speaking professor Mercedes Tainot (played by Julia Roberts) has clearly lost her passion for teaching.
Amid their budding romance, the two learn a valuable lesson… when you think everything worth having has passed you by, you just might discover your reason to live.
