Storyline

We were bored of school. We were bored of the everyday routine. And then, we had an idea. Second year of university ended, and our summer of work began. In late September 2004, we left Canada on a backpacking adventure and headed to the South Pacific. Tom, me and our two video cameras, documented the journey. The movie takes U on our adventure, and with the help of friends met along the way, curiosity and a passion to live, we all venture through time, life, and ourselves. What are your dreams? What will you do? Welcome to U. Written by Alexander Reid

Great Movie! Time to Travel!
28 June 2013 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

I watched The U Movie with my room mates, after watching we all wanted to travel. All the places the team visits are absolutely phenomenal, places I didn't even know existed! I really liked it when they switched back and forth from "study stress" and "soul searching". It really gives you a much needed perspective on how society constrains us. Its time for us to embrace the fact that we can in fact live our dreams! Our current reality is only a small percentage of what we've actually explored. The movie relates very well to anyone that watches it, its well grounded to anyone that just wants to break out and find their path. Watch this movie if you're undecided about your current situation, whether its to do with your career, or if you went through something difficult, take the time out to watch this, as it may give you the seeds you need to push forward!
