A story of life. A story of love. A story of hate. A story of guilt. "University Heights" tells the story of four lives on a college campus which have been torn apart - lives which could not be more different than the other. Throughout the course of a few days, each past is revealed - and each future will be uncovered. A tale of drugs, relationships, sexuality, racism, and deceit, "University Heights" grasps the everyday struggles of humanity - finding yourself. —Anonymous
Great Production and Effort, Story Could've Been Thought Out a Little Less
I saw the film when it appeared in Iowa City, where it was shot. I was surprised by the production value. The filmmakers made it look really sharp! Kudos to the team and the actors. I'd say more so to the actors, because even with the high-end production value, I felt that parts of the movie a bit cliché and a bit overdone. I don't think that makes it bad, but it keeps the film from being all it could be for a student film. I'd rather the plot wasn't done in such an over-complicated way, or that certain plot devices had been left out. But still, I don't think this is a film where you can really critique the writing so much as the production value, the way it was shot, the acting abilities, or the sheer audacity that the filmmakers chose to make a film closer to Hollywood than as an experimental art film which seems to be the only thing coming out of Iowa City film students. There is a place for both, and I appreciate that.
