Description by OLDIES.com:
Set to anthemic songs of the time, The Strawberry Statement is both about and from the era of protests that swept campuses in the 1960s and '70s. Bruce Davison plays Simon, an athlete drawn to the excitement of a demonstration, to a girl (Kim Darby) he meets and ultimately, to the cause. The film ends with a police-and-National Guard raid on protesters that gave viewers of the day a knowing unease: student demonstrators had been shot -- some fatally -- at Kent State University and Jackson State College in the month prior to the film's release.
Unlike many of his peers, Simon is at first more concerned with his classes than with fighting for causes. However, when he becomes attracted to Linda, a pretty radical, his views start changing.
Eventually, Simon participates in the famous Columbia riots that pitted the National Guard against student demonstrators...
