Movie Summary

Director:
Stuart Rosenberg
Released:
1980
Rating:
R

Henry Brubaker is the new reform warden who enters the prison in the guise of a prisoner in order to get a worm's eye view of the goings on. After ten or fifteen minutes he reveals his true identity and begins snapping out orders and cleaning things up. But Brubaker learns that prisons, like wars, must operate within political constraints. He is told of a field full of buried bodies and begins to dig them up, despite the entreaties of his political friends and advisers, who try to talk him out of it or buy him off with the prison improvements he's been fighting for. But nothing will wreck a reform agenda faster than zealotry. Before you can say Reign of Terror, Redford is relieved of his job and is driven away -- to the sad but appreciative applause of the prisoners he's leaving behind.
