Review by Devin Cane (posted on 22-May-2007)

This movie is based on the prison system in Arkansas, in the late '70s early '80s. Robert Redford had a discussion on the prison system with then Governor Bill Clinton, on T.V. Film was shot at the Junction City Prison Farm, in Junction City Ohio, & in neighboring New Lexington Ohio. More than 100 ex-cons, played extras throughout the film.
