Storyline

48 hours until graduation 1999 at Chadley University. Three students are competing for the most prestigious achievement, the Stirling Chase Award. Jenna (Alanna Ubach) is having trouble coming to terms with her deep-seated fear of intimacy, in particular the advances of one 'Bunz' Berstein.Alexis is the budding senator whose lesbian relationship and deaf roommate are conveniently used in her quest for 'open mindedness'. As the graduation ceremony approaches the third nominee, Darren, is forced to make a choice between forwarding his career or staying true to his friends and himself. Nice ending where each character parts with at least a bit of their ignorance. Written by kwedgwood@hotmail.com

What -is- after all the pomp and circumstance?
27 July 2003 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

That ponderous question is on the minds of the graduating students of a fictitious college and it shows in the apprehension on the fresh faces which are the focus of "Graduation Week". Among the characters of this even tempered B-flick are a diehard feminist, a sexually conflicted model female student, a black man on the fast track to success, etc. The film straddles the comedy and drama genres gracefully as it follows its characters through poignant realizations of what's important in life while the world awaits their contributions to humanity. Sensitive and full of heart, this big little flick will make for an entertaining watch for females and more mature males; especially those with nostalgic remembrances of their graduation week. (B)
