Film Review: 'Greatland'
In the vibrant utopia known as Greatland, life is all about diversity and love. At least, that's what Ulysses (Arman Darbo) grew up believing. But that worldview changes on his 15th birthday--the day he's set to undergo a mandatory rite-of-passage ceremony. It's on that day that Ulysses and his best friend "Ugly Duck" (Chloe Ray Warmoth) witness her father Mr. Lee being "sent to Resurrection" for not reporting how his daughter had contracted a virus that was plaguing their world. Having already seen how Mr. Lee was punished with becoming invisible and mute for conceiving Duck through "Stone Age procreation", seeds of doubt have already been planted in Ulysses' mind about Greatland's "perfection".

Too bad for Albert that his hiding place is also the new home of Maggie Newell (Carrie Schroeder) and her 18-year-old daughter Alex (Grace Patterson). But before Albert can make his escape, his lustful eyes are locked on Alex and a new obsession is born.

I can only imagine the host of problems that might arise from trying to teach an hour-long class over Zoom.
