Dog Pound

Three boys caught between youth and adulthood struggle to survive behind bars in this hard-hitting drama. Alex, Butch and David are three teenage criminals who have sentenced to the Enola Vale Correctional Facility, a juvenile detention facility in Montana. Goodyear, a guard who looks after the young inmates, is tough but fair-minded and urges the youngsters to play by the rules and quietly serve their time so they can earn a second chance on the outside. But the new inmates have to deal with young men who have been in lockup for a while, many of whom have become accustomed to the violence and intimidation of life behind bars. Banks is already a hard case who thrives on bullying those smaller and more vulnerable than himself; once he targets Butch, the new inmate starts down a path of retribution from which there is no return.The first English-language feature from French director Kim Chapiron; the film earned him an award as "Best New Narrative Filmmaker" at the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival.
