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.
Miranda de Pencier
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].
