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.

Martin Ritt's movie is often sentimental and hectoring, ramming home the contrast between Voight's comfy, secure rebellion against the Vietnam War and the utter destitution and backwardness of his pupils.
