What are people saying?

  • Rosina Rossini's rating of the film Borstal Boy

    A group of misfit juvenile delinquents find themselves at a boy's reformatory. Homosexuals, IRA rebels, and communists all forced to work together, with WWII hanging over them all. I have no idea how well the film follows the book, but the film certainly captured the appropriate atmosphere, even if the characters were a bit overly simplistic and idealistic. A film with passion behind it.
