The Cider House Rules (1999)
In "The Cider House Rules" the laborers laugh at the rules that are posted in the bunkhouse (when someone who can read finally reads the rules for them); they have broken every one and will continue to do so. One of the characters says those rules don't pertain to them because they didn't make the rules and they can't even read them. They have their own ideas about what's right and wrong. (Amy Parker, Charleston, West Virginia)
