Gripping story with some great performances!
'The Warden' was,for me,a gripping movie.Usually I am not one who
particularly enjoys a movie centred in and around a maximum security prison
but Ally Sheedy convinced me.A dynamic and ambitious woman named Helen
Hewitt(Sheedy) is brought in as the young warden of an all male,maximum
security prison just when things are getting hot for the prison bigwigs.She
is brought in to clean up the mess and the guys in the department(whose
have been severely dented by her appointment as warden) give her a week to
last in the job.
Things get complicated for the young warden as she battles her own private
demons and the tense,hostile environment she faces at the prison.This movie
is great to watch,kept me engrossed till the very end.Sheedy gives a
wonderfully realistic performance,supported by a good cast.There are
in the film when certain things don't add up and the viewer can't help but
feel a little lost but all in all 'The Warden' is well worth
