Movie Info

A group of classmates from Mount Holyoke College meet for an informal reunion circa 1978, some seven years after graduation. Designated "uncommon" because they were predicted by friends to be "amazing" before they were 30, we seein flashbacks how these women conducted themselves in their senior year, what their goals were, and how they were set -- or not -- on the path to achieving them. Seventies feminism found its most acclaimed dramatic voice in this first play by Wendy Wasserstein, which seems to be trading in stereotypes, but only because the kinds of characters it deals with -- collegiate feminists -- became such a commonplace and predictable stereotype of popular culture in the years that followed. The 1978 production from the Phoenix Theater in New York was originally broadcast on public television.

Wendy Wasserstein's drama is an exquisite blend of comedy and incisive commentary on what it means to be a young woman today.
