Review: ‘Warrendale’

This pic is a shattering documentary look at a home, Warrendale, for disturbed children and adolescents in Canada. It deals with a group of young, dedicated workers who stay with these emotionally mixed-up youngsters and emerges as engrossing, stark film.

This pic is a shattering documentary look at a home, Warrendale, for disturbed children and adolescents in Canada. It deals with a group of young, dedicated workers who stay with these emotionally mixed-up youngsters and emerges as engrossing, stark film.

The people involved seem unaware of the camera except when the filmmaker is mentioned by one of the workers. It is the treatment in this institution that is the thing in this psychologically absorbing, well made and incisive truth pic. Death of a beloved cook is one of the main segs of the film as it details the reactions of the patients who had become attached to her.
