Movie Info

In this docudrama, Natasha Richardson plays Patty Hearst, the heiress to her family newspaper fortune who was kidnapped and allegedly brainwashed by members of the radical Symbionese Liberation Army (SLA). She is blindfolded and stuffed into a closet for 57 days and subjected to the philosophies of her SLA captors. She is later offered her freedom but elects to join the group, and Hearst and the gang proceed to go on a rampage of well-publicized bank robberies. Since the story is told from the point of view of the victim -- from her book -- the feature attempts to portray her plight sympathetically. Was she the victim of ruthless political extremists or a spoiled rich girl playing out her counterculture fantasies? The truth probably lies somewhere in between. Twenty years after the kidnapping, her SLA counterparts were still in jail while Hearst, married with children, made the rounds of television talk shows. She is perceived as someone whose incredible financial resources kept her from prison, and her stories of being the terrorized victim are unconvincing at best.

Schrader's low-key approach to the tabloid story is refreshing. Richarson is magnificent.

Audience Reviews for Patty Hearst

Impressive though sometimes weak docu-drama detailing the kidnapping of a very rich girl. What's also impressive is that in this film there is no attempt by authorities to find Patty Hearst, find her or liberate her. See the trailer here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=co_904WytvM [img]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/d/d2/Hearst-hibernia-yell.jpg/220px-Hearst-hibernia-yell.jpg[/img] Patricia Campbell Hearst (born February 20, 1954), now known as Patricia Campbell Hearst Shaw, is an American newspaper heiress, socialite, actress, kidnap victim, and convicted bank robber. Her kidnapping case is held by many as an example of Stockholm syndrome.

Instead, we see constant torture of her. The final insult is that she is shown assisting her captors rob banks, stores, etc. It's enough to make your blood boil, but eventually she was pardoned by President's Carter and Clinton. Shows it helps to know people!

Apprehended after having taken part in a bank heist with other SLA members, Hearst was imprisoned for almost two years before her sentence was commuted by President Jimmy Carter. She was later granted a presidential pardon by President Bill Clinton in his last official act before leaving office.

However, according to Hearst interviewer Margaret Singer, a noted authority on prisoner of war and other victims including Maryknoll priests[8] released from the People's Republic of China in the 1950s, this is not unusual in such cases. 2 Hearst was convicted of bank robbery on March 20, 1976. She was sentenced to 35 years' imprisonment, but her sentence was later commuted to seven years. Her prison term was also eventually commuted by President Jimmy Carter, and Hearst was released from prison on February 1, 1979, having served 22 months. She was granted a full pardon by President Bill Clinton on January 20, 2001. Personal life After her release from prison, she married her former bodyguard, Bernard Shaw. She and Shaw have two children, Gillian and Lydia Hearst-Shaw, and reside in Garrison, New York. Hearst has occasionally granted interviews to national media regarding the SLA incidents and taken minor acting parts.

A decent but very choppy version of Patty Hearst's book. It does a decent job of telling what happened to her, but cuts too many details that were in the book, you don't really have time to get the full effect of her story. I do like the way it depicts the kidnapping and the way it ends.
