In Brief WITH PRISONERS (2017) NYAFF 2017
Harrowing tale of a tough as nails gang leader thrown into juvenile detention after a bar fight. The beatings and humiliations he receive there push him to the very edge...
Solid prison drama goes wonky in the last third as the prison drama turns into social justice tract toward making the system change. The second part isn't bad but it is a bit too preachy to satisfy after such a dark first hour.
Still its very much worth a look.
