Within These Walls was a good way to spend 2 hours. It is one of the
made-for-TV movies I have seen in a long time. Although it may not be
to the facts, I did find it to be uplifting and encouraging. The idea of
inmates training dogs was not new to me, but seeing it brought to life was
cool. I am glad to know that some inmates out there are finding new
purpose, dogs are being saved and handicapped people are getting helped
(even if it is only a few).
Joan is a hardened, emotionless criminal. Most of the other prisoners
to be afraid of her and just leave her alone. Sister Pauline is a nun
a complicated past who wants to get a program started at the womens'
where the inmates will train dogs for the handicapped. She believes it is
win-win-win situation. It takes a little work to convince the warden, but
eventually she, as well as the female guard responsible for supervising
project, are fully on board. A lot of human drama among Sister Pauline
the women training the dogs takes place, as well. We quickly see many
little ways in which the activity is changing all their
All that said, Ellen Burstyn is, as she always is, the glue that holds
piece together. The woman can act! She can play anything. This time,
uncharacteristically, she is playing a rather unpleasant and unlikable (at
least initially) character, Joan Thomas. Ms. Burstyn is aided nicely by
Laura Dern (as Sister Pauline), never one of my particular favorites, but
effective here. The actresses playing the guard, warden, and the other two
dog-training prisoners are also quite capable.
I like the way that we get to find out bits and pieces at a time about
Joan's and Pauline's pasts and why they are the way they are. We aren't
just smacked over the head with it constantly. The filmmakers did a nice
job of interspersing the dog training scenes with the scenes of
among the women. I felt like I was going through the emotional highs and
lows with them. Ellen Burstyn has an uncanny ability to rip my heart out
just by the look in her eyes, and she does it again in Within These Walls.
Overall, it gets a B+ from me.
