5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Movie that Nobody Ever Noticed May 10, 2014
By Tom
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
On a Saturday afternoon in 1974, when I was 11 years old, I went with my two best friends to the local movie theater (remember when movie houses only showed one movie at a time, not twelve??) to see the new version of "The Three Musketeers." Much to our dismay, and not un-typical of that time, we discovered that the Main Feature would be preceded by another full movie (something called a "double bill" which no longer exists anymore). That other movie--which we didn't pay to see and didn't want to see--was "Conrack." Four decades later, I can remember nothing about "The Three Musketeers," but "Conrack" remains the movie I've never been able to forget, one I stayed up late nights to watch on TV before there was such a thing as a VCR (let alone DVD or Blu-Ray Player), one I've eagerly awaited to be released in digital format while thousands of far less worthy films were released and re-relased. And all along, I've wondered why a movie of such compelling characters, superb performances, stunning cinematography, and even Hollywood pedigree (Jon Voight, Paul Winfield, Hume Cronyn for crying out loud! and director Martin Ritt) has gone virtually unnoticed.

You can imagine my reaction when I just happened upon the item page for "Conrack: Limited Edition Blu-Ray" here at Amazon.com. My heart nearly leapt out of my chest.

This movie, based on Pat Conroy's "The Water is Wide" tells the story of an idealistic white schoolteacher arriving on a remote and utterly isolated island off the South Carolina coast to teach the children of the exclusively black population. What follows is alternately fascinating and infuriating, funny and touching, loathsome and lovable.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great timeless classic August 29, 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
A great timeless classic! Thank goodness for a movie that has a genuine heart and runs counter to all the Political BS today! It just shows what goodness there is in the world and what genuine progress can be made in love and respect between cultures and races when one's heart in in the right place and things are done for the right reasons. John Voight shines in this film and shows what this man is made of;;and still today he remains true to sound principles that are demonstrated in this remarkable little under appreciated film!

5.0 out of 5 stars love this movie June 15, 2014
Format:Blu-ray
it was one of the first really special films i saw on the television alone, on a sunday afternoon. it didn't have Nazi's or car chases and it was more powerful and moving than all the other films id seen before. john voight made me want to grow up to be like him. and the sweetness, gentleness and overall home town feel of the film made me feel included. a very special film.

Always loved this movie especially it is based on a true story.
John Voight is excellent as Conrack.
There is no sex or violence just a great story and acting.
