Not your typical love story – A prison volunteer falls in love with a man doing life in jail in this inconceivably extraordinary account (1984).
Director: John Kastner
Memorable quote: “When I became aware that I was attracted to Ron, I can remember having a conversation in which I discussed how ludicrous it would be for anybody to get involved with someone on the inside… and then I wrote him a letter telling him I was interested.” – Leslie talks about falling in love with Ron, a convicted murderer.
LOL moment: New correctional staff ‘re-enacting’ prison fights at a graduation ceremony.
Mixed blessing: All of Ron’s hard work in prison (involvement in therapy, yoga and meditation) pays off and he is granted full parole, but survival proves to be not so easy on the ‘outside’, since finding work is a very difficult process. Will he make it in the real world – or return to the violence of his past?
