Review

Inspired by writer/director James Francis Flynn's experiences while attending Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, this stop the wrecking ball comedy centers on the efforts of four recent college graduates to prevent the new president of their alma mater from transforming their free-spirited art school into a stuffy business school. Nathan, Dom, Justin, and Bob were college roommates who always knew how to have a good time. Now that college is over, the four friends are spending their last youthful summer in the house of their recently-deceased dean. Upon realizing that the new president of the university wants to do away with the school's popular art program in order to make way for bigger business classes, Nathan vows to do everything in his power to keep the art school active. Meanwhile, his three roommates attempt to squeeze in as much partying as possible before reluctantly venturing out into the "real world." Of course it's only a matter of time before the rebellious Nathan clashes with the strict new president, and before the summer is over the boys will throw one last bash that the locals will be talking about for years to come --Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

James Flynn's film directorial debut, Eastern College, tells the story of a small group of recent college graduates who are about to go their separate ways. Shot on location at Flynn s alma mater, Miami University, Eastern College manages to avoid the cliches of many college-set coming-of-age comedies, putting a personal spin on a well-worn genre. Think a Midwestern version of an Andrew Bujalski film laconic, very talky investigations of relation ship-challenged, college-educated twentysomethings on the brink of adulthood. --Jason Gargano, Cincinnati CityBeat

Product Description

Four recently graduated college roommates spend their last summer in a small town, experiencing their changing friendships, the relationships with the women in their lives, and the possibility that their alma mater might be shut down due to new administration. In this outrageous independent comedy, Nathan (Jonathan Dominic), Dom (Christopher Clark Cowan), Justin (Noah Applebaum), and Bob (Brandon Lea) move into their recently deceased Dean's house and start partying. Their good times get a bit set back upon learning that the new President of their university, President Garlin (Elizabeth Laidlaw), intends to shut down their art school and turn it into a business school. As Nathan does everything he can to keep their art school active and alive, his roommates continue to party and pick up girls, leading to a concluding confrontation between the students and President Garlin, and a subsequent final party at their house that ends with disastrous results. A surprisingly realistic and unexpectedly emotional film about academic life, "Eastern College" is the award-winning debut feature film from writer/director James Francis Flynn, based on his own experiences during his time at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Film From An Up and Coming Director September 25, 2009
Format:DVD
I saw Eastern College at a special screening in Chicago and really loved it. The film is a hilariously poignant; if you've ever stayed up until 4:00 am doing whip-its or passed out in an empty kiddie pool then you will surely agree. It's not a callow slacker movie of the Apatow variety though. It's directed with a sense of confidence and maturity and definitely earns artistic merit. James Francis Flynn is definitely a director in the independent film world to keep your eye on.

4.0 out of 5 stars A really good movie July 13, 2009
Format:DVD
I fell in love with this movie when I saw it a few months ago and I'm glad to see that it's finally getting a DVD release. There isn't much to say other than anyone who likes coming-of-age comedies should really give this film a chance. It's funny, it's got heart and the actors are all really amazing (especially Noah Applebaum who is so funny).

Give this one a look, it's worth it...

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and very honest July 13, 2009
Format:DVD
Saw Eastern College at a film festival a while back and was really taken with how honest and real the comedy was. The story is pretty standard (a bunch of guys just out of college are directionless) but what makes the movie amazing is how real the characters feel and how funny the movie is. Writer/director James Francis Flynn really did an amazing job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait for more! July 21, 2009
Format:DVD
This is a clever, honest college movie that manages to be funny, touching and hopeful without even attempting to be another Animal House or PCU. It's relevant and real and very enjoyable.

James Francis Flynn is an extremely talented writer/director. If his first feature is this good, I'm very much looking forward to what comes next!
