Critic Reviews for Conrack
The spirit behind Conrack is so relentlessly idealistic in tone and uplifting in intent that one feels vaguely guilty for not responding to the film generously and forgivingly.
Few will totally resist the surefire appeal of this latest variation on Pygmalion mythology.
The potentially dubious aspects of the subject are mostly exorcised, in part by a strong script (adapted from the book by real-life teacher Pat Conroy), but largely by the engaging and persuasive performance Ritt draws from Voight.
Despite Mr. Voight's skill, the teacher's character never jells.
