The Graduates: Careful, We Don’t Want To Learn From This

By: Brian O’Conor

New York, NY:

The tagline for the new comedy The Graduates could not be more perfect. Proudly proclaiming “Careful, we don’t want to learn from this…” the poster is an equal mix of a trubute to and satire of that time in life when we know everything and nothing.

When four high school graduates cram into the back of an older brother’s dying car destined for Ocean City, Maryland, they have no idea what’s in store for them. Though their goal is simple- to have one last hurrah before the group breaks up for good- their trip will be anything but.

The Graduates toes the line between raucus comedy and brilliant satire, filled with memorable lines and, at times, sharp and biting insight into who we are at 18.

Made for a paltry $95,000, first time writer-director Ryan Gielen serves up pleny of laughs, but enough insight and growth to make this film powerful and endearing.
