The Strawberry Statement is a 1970 feature film directed by Stuart Hagmann and written by James Kunen and Israel Horovitz. It is adapted from the book The Strawberry Statement, also written by James Kunen. The movie is based on the historic 1968 Columbia University protests. In the movie, the protests take place at a fictional university in San Francisco. The movie revolves around two college students, Simon (Bruce Davison) and his girlfriend, Linda (Kim Darby). Linda is a leftist protester, but Simon, at first, is more moderate and focused on doing well at school and graduating to get a good job. Simon's politics slowly begin to change as he is influenced by Linda. When he is beaten up by a right wing jock, Simon pretends he was beaten up by the police, and becomes an immediate hero. Between confrontations with gangsters, promiscuous women, the college administration and the police, Simon begins to question the motives of the establishment, the protestors and himself.moreless
