The Undergrad | Chicago Reader

The Undergrad

Chicago filmmaker Michele Mahoney reworks The Graduate, inverting Elizabethan practice by casting women in every role. The result is fairly clever (the hero is tempted by a corporate career not in plastics but in latex), though finally thin and underdeveloped. The film poses questions about gender and power while echoing the original's critiques of marriage, religion, and social conformity. Mahoney has a sharp eye for expressive Chicago locations and a sharp ear for music, both of which help her transcend her technical limitations. 40 min.
