Rating: 2.5/4 -- The strange thing about the movie is the way the moments of inspiration raise our hopes, and then disappoint them. Full Review

...An unusually good feeling for the time, the place, the characters....Effective tension...

The picture is timid, and all but worthless, but moviegoers who have always longed to see Donald Sutherland as a monk -- and I know that you guys are out there -- will be in ecstasy. Full Review

Product Description:

St. Basil, a strict Catholic school for boys, stands as a fortress against the hedonistic 1960's. But the Brothers of St. Basil have their work cut out for them with their latest batch of sex-crazed, rebellious students. Between the comic moments filled with boyish shenanigans, this film offers realistic glimpses of the vibrancy of 1965 Brooklyn and into the parochial school system.
