The PHD Movie is a live-action adaptation of the popular online webcomic "Piled Higher and Deper (PHD)" about life (or the lack thereof) in Academia. With humor and heart, the film follows the plight of two graduate students ("The Nameless Graduate Student", played by Raj Katti, and Cecilia, played by Alexandra Lockwood) as they try to find meaning and balance in the annals of Academia. Along the way, appearances are made by other well known PHD Comics characters. Look for Mike Slackenerny, Tajel and of course Professor Smith. Eventually, they learn that getting a Ph.D. is as much about finding truth in research as it is about finding truth in yourself.
Running time: 1 hour 5 minutes
