Wellesley College issued a press release "Wellesley College Is Among the Stars of the Film, Mona Lisa Smile" prior to the movie's release:

WELLESLEY, Mass. -- -- On Dec. 19, Columbia Pictures and Revolution Studios will release a major motion picture, "Mona Lisa Smile," a fictional story starring Julia Roberts set in the early 1950s - a time of social change in America. Although the screenplay features fictional characters and situations, the scene is set at Wellesley College. While much of the beautiful scenery and some cherished traditions depicted in the movie do reflect the real Wellesley College, the movie aims for a different goal: to depict a time in history when women find themselves reaching for equal opportunities and personal fulfillment beyond traditional roles.
