Trivia

In order to do research for the film, Virginia Kellogg pulled some strings to incarcerate herself in a woman's prison. What she wrote once she was out was not so much a screenplay, but a kind of almanac of everything she witnessed while in prison. Warner Bros. then got their screenwriters to make a screenplay out of it. See more »

Very Good
11 May 1999 | by (Selbyside - St. Paul, MN USA) – See all my reviews

Extremely well made drama about a woman's prison is one of the first and definitely the best of its genre. See it if you can find it on cable because unfortunately it's one of those films still in the archives.
