2081: Everyone Will Finally be Equal
August 15, 2008
I didn’t see a release date right away, but this one’s gonna’ be good…Via Club for Growth. Watching the trailer, I had flashbacks of both 1984 and Gattaca.
“Based on the short story Harrison Bergeron by celebrated author Kurt Vonnegut, 2081 depicts a dystopian future in which, thanks to the 212th Amendment to the Constitution and the unceasing vigilance of the United States Handicapper General, everyone is finally equal… The strong wear weights, the beautiful wear masks and the intelligent wear earpieces that fire off loud noises to keep them from taking unfair advantage of their brains. It is a poetic tale of triumph and tragedy about a broken family, a brutal government, and an act of defiance that changes everything.”
