Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 10/31/1996
"...Superbly played....Levinson shows a keen eye for the pangs of adolescence..."
Variety - 09/02/1996
"...Colorful characters, richly evoked settings...and a good dose of good old-fashioned epic star power....There's a lot to enjoy in this impeccably structured, handsomely produced saga..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 10/18/1996
"...Dustin Hoffman gives a fine, subtle, quavering performance....Kevin Bacon is a strong, effective villain..."

When a mischievous prank goes awry, a group of Hell's Kitchen juveniles are sent to a reform institution, where they experience brutal sexual assaults by the sadistic "caretakers." Two decades later, a pair of the now-grown victims spot their chief tormenter and decide to exact revenge.
