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.”

    I am totally geeked out about this. Harrison Bergeron is brilliant and thought provoking sci-fi, something you rarely see make it to the screen. If the trailer for 2081 is any indication, the quality of this film will do the source material justice. I just hope they can get it onto enough screens.
