||Synopsis: White Pat Conroy was born and raised in Beaufort, South Carolina. In March, 1969 under the Beaufort School District, he starts a job teaching at a small poor school located on Daufuskie Island, an island in a South Carolina river delta, the island accessible only by boat. The island is inhabited exclusively by blacks. He quickly learns that his students, who have never left the island, lack not only a basic understanding of academic items such as the alphabet and simple arithmetic, but also of other basic necessities of life such as personal hygiene. They can't even pronounce his name, they who call him Conrack. The teachers before him, including the school principal Mrs. Scott, have always treated the students as being slow and basically unteachable of academics.

Pat Conroy is one of our most elegant writers, and his first book, a
memoir of his adventure teaching a group of heart-breakingly neglected
and ignorant black children on an island off the coast of South
Carolina should be required upper-class reading for kids who have To
Kill a Mockingbird under their belts.
Now, the movie: If you read the book, the movie will seem so
Hollywoodized that you'll wonder who "cuted-up" Conrack (the kids'
pronunciation for Conroy). Jon Voight is earnest and sweaty, and pulls
off Conroy's youthful self-righteousness to a T, but Hume Cronyn is
miscast as the evil, bigoted superintendent. The kids are strangely
ignored here, although they are complex and fascinating in their own
right in the book. Voight's teaching is the best part of this film, but
Conroy's explanation to the white citizenry of why he should be
retained--after annoying the county school administration for the last
time--is destroyed by the ridiculous scene with Voight driving the
streets of Buford, using a P.A. system on his hippiemobile to bludgeon
Hell, watch it anyway.
