Title from title frames

When first-time felon Ron Decker (Edward Furlong, AMERICAN HISTORY X, T2: JUDGEMENT DAY) is sentenced to two years in a decaying prison, he is quickly introduced to a world where violence is the only way of life. After witnessing a riot, Ron is soon taken under the wing of Earl Copen (Willem Dafoe, PLATOON, THE ENGLISH PATIENT), a veteran convict who has manipulated the system to his every advantage, earning the respect of the toughest cons and the favor of the crooked guards. But sometimes even respect in a community of convicts can hold you prisoner. Now, Ron will soon discover that life in the Animal Factory is not about rehabilitation; it's about survival. "*The bleakness and myriad cruelties of the prison system are telegraphed with a graceful touch.*" - Ernest Hardy, **** "*In ANIMAL FACTORY, the finely tuned prison drama, Buscemi displays a pinpoint humanity, reminiscent of Jonathan Demme, that lays bare the inner turmoil of everyone on screen*." - Owen Gleiberman, **Entertainment Weekly**
