Sleepers (18-Oct-1996)

Director: Barry Levinson

Writer: Barry Levinson

Based on a book: Sleepers by Lorenzo Carcaterra

Producers: Barry Levinson; Steve Golin

Keywords: True Crime, Prison, Revenge

Four boys growing up in Hell's Kitchen of the 1960s injure a hot-dog vendor and receive sentences to a juvenile facility. There, they undergo physical abuse and rape by guards, notably Sean Nokes played by Kevin Bacon. Years after release, two of the boys randomly encounter Nokes, and deal quick revenge. Complex story of moral ambiguity, at times over-reliant on narration. John Williams received an Oscar nomination for Dramatic Score.
