Harrison Bergeron - Movie made for Showtime (1995)

Welcome to the future. It's a no-brainer. "All men are not created equal. It is the purpose of the Government to make them so." This is the premise of the Showtime film adaption of Kurt Vonnegut's futuristic short story Harrison Bergeron. The film centers around a young man (Harrison) who is smarter than his peers, and is not affected by the usual "Handicapping" which is used to train all Americans so everyone is of equal intelligence. Directed by Bruce Pittman. Screenplay by Arthur Crimm Original Short-Story by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. Starring : Sean Astin Christopher Plummer Miranda de Pencier Eugene Levy Howie Mandel Hayden Christensen Sadly, this movie never made it to DVD, so we offer up the best quality version: capped from a 1995 VHS recording made of a Showtime broadcast [which makes this copy a public good].
