Conrack

Description
Conrack follows a young teacher, Pat Conroy, in 1969 assigned to isolated 'Yamacraw Island' off the coast of South Carolina and populated mostly by poor black familes. He has to find a way to get through to the uninterested kids and teach them what they need to know and also to keep on the good side of the school superintendent, who doesn't want him there.

The potentially dubious aspects of the subject are mostly exorcised, in part by a strong script (adapted from the book by real-life teacher Pat Conroy), but largely by the engaging and persuasive performance Ritt draws from Voight.

The spirit behind Conrack is so relentlessly idealistic in tone and uplifting in intent that one feels vaguely guilty for not responding to the film generously and forgivingly.
