Chocolate War, The

Based on Robert Cormier's controversial young adult novel - once the most widely banned book in America - this starkly beautiful and deeply intense allegory of abusive power is set in a Catholic boy's school where a chocolate sale becomes a war over conformity. Jerry (Ilan Mitchell-Smith) is a student who refuses to take part, undercutting ambitious school administrator Brother Leon (John Glover). Leon secretly enlists Archie (Wallace Langham), the sadistic mastermind of the school's resident gang, to Jerry into line. But motives and results are far more complex than they first seem.
