A touching, prison drama.
29 April 2019 | by RatedVforVinnySee all my reviews

This obscure prison drama was made for TV (in the 1980's) but i'm surprised that no one has reviewed it previously, or even picked up on it . I have watched a good few movies in this genre and whilst the production values do not exactly match the films of today, it's rather well made and moving at times. Stars Geoffrey Lewis, who was one of the baddies in 'High Plains Drifter', whilst the lead actor Robert Desiderio, is highly watchable to.
