20th century pint-sized icon Linda Blair (THE EXORCIST; SAVAGE STREETS) paints a blazing on-screen portrait of a teenage reform school inmate. Here, she’s unworldly and naive, but that all changes in the reformatory, where she becomes as hard and irredeemable as her fellow detentionees. As her probationary release looms, she shows fewer and fewer signs of being “cured."
This youth-in-revolt favorite inspired countless TV-raised teens to take a stand against adulthood — NO RULES!!! — and even earned itself the honor of becoming an album title for LA punk adolescents Redd Kross.
“Whether she’s carving her initials in her forearm or slapping a schoolmarm upside the head, Linda Blair lends a natural believably.” - KinderTrauma
