10 January 1999 | Nick-145
| Great expose revealing exploitation of delinquents in labor-camp/reform school.
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.
