I thought Turning to Stone was a very good movie and its a shame that it was never released on video or DVD. Its better than a lot of movies that DO get released. Nicky Guadagni who played the main character did some wonderful acting. Also outstanding was Shirley Douglas who played the tough leader of some of the prisoners. Jackie Richardson was also very good. This movie ranks among the top dramas about female prison life though its not for the squeamish and in my view, can be a bit shocking at times. I can't understand why it never got to video or DVD. I can only think that maybe it wasn't released because it was a Canadian made movie with mostly Canadian actors,and doesn't have the exposure of most U.S. made movies. Its a loss to lots of people who like good acting. Too bad!
As of Aug.2008, I am still waiting and hoping this excellent movie will be released on DVD.
As of Dec.21,2011, I am still waiting and hoping this excellent movie will be released on DVD. I hope some film studio will release it. If the movie was better known, it would have been on DVD years ago. Very good acting.
