Caged ★★★★

alternative title: Orange is the New Black: The Summary

another amazing performance from my woman Eleanor Parker: from a meek, scaredy-cat newbie prisoner to a hardened, notorious convict. good and verisimilar plot too —  it doesn't try too hard and end up being over the top and corny. instead, it will remind you of OITNB over and over; it's actually pretty cool. add to this some lesbian subtext (Bette Davis turned this down and called it a "dyke movie") and you wouldn't want it to end but it ends and damn.
