Motion Picture Purgatory: Born Innocent

Trembles returns this week with a look back at an oldie but a goodie: 1974 TV movie Born Innocent, directed by Donald (Ice Castles) Wrye and starring Linda Blair, Joanna Miles, Kim Hunter, and Richard Jaeckel.

A constant runaway is given over to the care of the state and finds herself in a remand center for girls. She is soon caught between the uncaring bureaucracy, the sometimes brutal treatment from her peers and her own abusive family, and only one care worker sees her potential to rise above her tragic circumstances.

“Used to be on the run but now she thinks it’s lotsa fun” –Redd Kross
