Storyline

Mike is an average twenty-one year old university student. He goes to class, shares an apartment with his two best friends, and he has no luck with women. That is until Mike meets Sam. The two students share a common feeling of disillusionment with the way their lives are progressing and they begin to fall for each other. Their budding romance is the centrepiece of the film and it is through them that we meet the rest of the romantically challenged ensemble. Written by Anonymous

reminiscent of an undergraduate thesis, and not a particularly good one
16 March 2015 | by ArchonCinemaReviewsSee all my reviews

Millennials is a pedestrian attempt at film making and reminiscent of an undergraduate thesis, and not a particularly good one.

On one hand, you have to hand it to both Brad Everett and Ben Oliver for getting their film The Millennials out there for mass viewership. On the other hand, nothing happens throughout the entire film.

The film The Millennials suffers from the self-indulgent lack of insight that comes from youthful headstrong narcissistic innocence. Of course twenty-somethings graduating from college and grappling with near adulthood would make a film about twenty-somethings graduating from college and grappling with near adulthood. Yawn.

That isn't the problem though as Reality Bites did it for Generation X and it was modern, poignant and still relevant today. The problem is that neither Everett nor Oliver have anything introspective or unique to say about the millennial generation. Further, there is no grounding conflict or cathartic revelation to conclude the film. The Millennials touches upon dating, sexuality, mental illness and a medley of other topics but they are all so fleeting and so superficial that it seems as though writer Brad Everett was trying to cram two pounds of sh*$ into a one pound bag, pardon the expression.

As with most films of this caliber, you expect the acting to be pretty rough and unaffected and The Millennials is right on the mark with that one. One must assume the film makers cast friends rather than holding a cold casting call – and honestly, anything would have been an improvement.

With no true structure to the plot, no interesting conflict, no resounding connection and romance and even limited and contrived drama, The Millennials is a failure on all fronts. Perhaps this is good for both Brad Everett and Ben Oliver and these missteps will be a learning experience.
