Trivia

At the end of the film, Mr Albee is charged with "peonage". Peonage is a system where creditors forced debtors to work for them and is a form of involuntary servitude. Peonage was made illegal in the USA by an act of Congress in 1867. See more »

Great expose revealing exploitation of delinquents in labor-camp/reform school.
10 January 1999 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

This is a horrific expose of child-labor conditions that existed early in the 20th Century. The film illustrates the harsh "youth-offender" penalties and unchecked institutions that sought to remediate/exploit these wayward youths up to that time. Also evident are the practices of "Company Stores" in "Company Towns" with use of fear and coercion. The performances are somewhat dated but somehow communicate the sincerity of the intended message.
