One man against a cruel system.
Starring Robert Redford, this potent drama is based on the real life story of Tom Murton, the prison superintendent who rocked Arkansas politics when he exposed scandalous abuses and murders in a state prison. Posing as a new prisoner, Brubaker (Redford) discovers vast corruption in a state penitentiary before revealing himself to be the new warden. His personal crusade to bring reform puts him in grave danger, especially when he insists on exposing a series of secret murders that took place years earlier. Powerful and disturbing, Brubaker won acclaim for its gritty realism and Oscar-nominated screenplay.

"...a solid, mid-career performance by Redford.  Robin Clifford, Reeling Reviews
"The film is a good one, especially for its examination of zealotry and the politics of compromise.  Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality & Health

Editor's Note
When Brubaker (Robert Redford) comes to a small state prison to be its new warden, he's horrified by what he sees. Prisoners are sold as slaves, and even decent food can't be obtained without cold, hard cash. So the enraged warden tries to set matters right...but the more he reforms, the more enemies he makes with the townspeople who have benefitted from the corruption. Soon Brubaker's in big trouble--and it looks as if no one is powerful enough to help. This powerful drama received an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Screenplay.
