Born Innocent ★★★★½

Groundbreaking tv movie that changed tv standards forever. Blair is heartbreaking as a runaway 14 year old that winds up in a reform school practically abandoned by her horribly dysfunctional family. Her first shower at the reform school is so sad and powerful. Dead on portrait of garbage parenting skills and tone deaf juvenile institutions that believe that being brutally strict leads to a child changing for the better. Scary, compassionate, just a frightening experience.
