Why See The Philanthropist?

Two-time Tony Award® winner Matthew Broderick (The Producers) stars in this biting comedy that turns Molieré's The Misanthrope on its cynical ear. Set at an elite British university in the near future.

The Philanthropist is about nice-guy professor Phil (Broderick), who - in refusing to succumb to his colleagues' excessively critical ways - winds up destroying his own credibility in the twisted world of academia...and in the bedroom!
