Product Overview

The Utopian Society is the story of six college students from different backgrounds, who are assigned to work together on a final project. These six students have so far spent no time together, can't stand each other and must pass this final assignment in order to pass the class. The assignment is to create a utopian society, on paper. They've had all semester to work on the project but in the tradition of most college group assignments, have opted to wait until the last minute to cram the entire semester's work into one night.

ReviewSource Reel Talk
Review At one time or another, almost everyone has put off doing an academic assignment until the last minute. The Utopian Society, directed by John P. Aguirre, shows what happens when six college students are faced with completing a challenging group project all in one night. A motley crew, these individuals hardly know one another and seem more intent on irritating each other than working together on a sociology paper describing what they would consider a true utopia...The Utopian Society features a cast of promising young actors who play their roles well -- although I had trouble understanding Doumit's dialogue sometimes. Since making this film, Nichols has appeared in Glory Road, Akerman in The Comeback on HBO, Hostetler in TV's Cold Case, Ariza in TV's The Unit, Doumit in The Hot Chick and Yu (who turns in the most nuanced performance here) in Grandma's Boy...While the movie is quite talky, that's par for the course in a dramedy like this. Yes, there's some humor, but it's definitely not the ribald kind found in Animal House or American Pie. Directing from a script by Jason Preston, Aguirre deserves praise for handling such serious issues as stereotyping and sexual abuse in a thought-provoking way.
