‘Sweethearts’ Goes Back to Prison!

October 6th, 2009 we went inside Danny’s prison to show the film to him and other medium-security inmates. Watching their reaction was a great experience- of course they cheered and cringed at all the glorious and violent moments of the rodeo. But they also showed true compassion for their female counterparts. After the film we had a Q&A, and the inmates started a discussion amongst themselves about the consequences of locking up mothers.  Danny himself was horrified to see the cow trailer they put the girls in to go to the try outs.  And he caught a lot of flack from his fellow inmates about a pair of glasses he was sporting in the film. They told him it was a good thing he got rid of them, and he said he didn’t know the fashion police were here in prison with him.
