Storyline

Stanley, Harry, Sheila and Beth have just finished their first year at Harrad College and have a special bond together. Harrad College isn't an ordinary school. The school conducts an experiment where students from different sex are put together in one room. Sexual freedom is encouraged. Now the summer break has arrived, the four have decided to spend the holidays together. They will visit an old friend of Beth and after that spend two weeks at the families of Stanley, Harry and Sheila. They have to fight against bias however. Not everyone is fond of Harrad College and some see it as only an easy way for the students to fulfill their feelings of lust. Will the relationships and beliefs of the four students hold up under the constant pressure? Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

A Throwback for turbulent times!
18 November 2001 | by dropbox18See all my reviews

In these turbulent times, it's nice to go back to your youth. Long story short, if you want to look at a great piece of cinematic history that will take you back to the early 1970's, I recommend this, HARRAD EXPERIMENT and MASH!!!
