Stephen King wrote "Different Seasons" in 1992 and includes as one novella was "Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption".  This novella was made into the movie "Shawshank Redemption" which was a Academy Award-nomiee for Best Picture.

The novella provides more character information regarding Red and the movie is particularly faithful in maintaining the story line from the book.

Yeah...Great film GregBo. I've seen it over well over 100 times probably. Never read the book though.

Strange to remember that it was a box office flop (of sorts) and achieved it's massive popularity at a later stage thanks to video's/DVD's.

Wonderful film, great characters and a strong story line. I doubt that there are many people that haven't seen it, but if you are one of them...I'd highly recommend it.

The main character is a kind man, a successful businessman and a dedicated husband. Despite this, he still comes home to find his wife having sex with a Chad Golf Pro and the story develops from there.

I wasn't MGTOW when I first watched this film - but his struggles following the above incident, through no fault of his own, aren't lost on me now.

I own the film, but never read the book either. I am behind on my reading, but I will add it to the list.

Check Don.  The character creation was great and an example of what a man can achieve with strong motivation and a clear path.  The kicker for me was his not forgetting Red who enabled his escape by fulfilling a request for a mundane object that would be looked at with scorn by the remainder of the prison population.

Better add more support to your book case/book shelf to hold all your "pending books to read" Uly!  I've got another selection ready for you when ever you finish the current group...hint hint!! 😮  😱  😀

That was a really good movie. My contribution will be this Family guy Shawshank spoof.

Thanks MMB!  This is closer to the truth regarding current parole hearing than most folks would think.
