Thoughts on Undergrads
Thoughts – Undergrads is a reflective look at college life and how despite becoming adults, the young people don’t know what they want or are expecting from their lives. We follow the lives of these students over a weekend, where they see things changing for them, some for the good, some for the unknown and some self-inflicted. When it comes to the college life, we always get to see the uncertainty or pressure piled on the students who are given the demand that this small time is about partying and preparing for the rest of their lives, only it is never that easy to put together. Undergrads will highlight the problems that can come from this, seeing how the friendship made there can be important to get through the bad times and prepare the next times. We have a young cast here, who don’t put a foot wrong in their performances, with a host of names to look out for in the future. Undergrads is a movie that will let us see how life can change in an instant, showing us how difficult the big decisions truly can be for everyone around us.
Final Thoughts – Undergrads is a reflective drama that makes you think about the steps we take in life.
