"The unobtrusive style of the film [P4W: Prison for Women] is perfectly suited to the brutal honesty of the inmates' stories. Mixing cinéma-vérité with interviews, the filmmakers created a poignant picture of a group of women struggling to maintain their individuality, their sanity, and their closest relationships."
