Set in a future America, where a small, elite group controls the masses, teen Harrison Bergeron is chosen to lead a movement that promotes mediocrity. Christopher Plummer stars as John Klaxon, the mastermind behind the attempt to uniformly dumb-down Americans.more

Audience Reviews for Kurt Vonnegut's Harrison Bergeron


This is an excellent movie about the inevitable destiny of the nanny state. Based on the Kurt Vonnegut short story (though actually giving more background that the original story did), this film should be a clarion call to every freedom loving individual to take a closer look at what the paternalistic socialists in the democratic party are attempting to foist upon the American people.
