CONRACK (1974) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Jon Voight, Hume Cronyn, Madge Sinclair, Paul Winfield, Tina Andrews, Antonio Fargas
Directed By:  Martin Ritt
Composed By:  John Williams

“Voight’s Conroy is a teacher with the soul of an artist…just about the lustiest, most joyful presence in current films…Lively and touching.”
Pauline Kael, The New Yorker

“Jon Voight maintains his humor, gumption, and versatility…And he deserves special credit for acting with the 21 children who could snatch a scene from many seasoned actors…The best moments in Conrack generate a confidence in change.”
—Nora Sayre, The New York Times

Martin Ritt (Hud, Norma Rae) directs and Jon Voight stars in Conrack (1974), based on Pat Conroy’s memoir about his difficult if uplifting days as a teacher on a remote island off the coast of South Carolina. The idealistic young Conroy (Voight) finds a largely illiterate population of black children, ill-equipped for life in the outside world; he determines to help them, combining love, energy, and sheer imagination in an extraordinary effort to pique their burgeoning interest in life off-island. A classic tale of pedagogical rescue, gorgeously photographed by John A. Alonzo, and featuring a score by the one and only John Williams.
