An interesting and revealing documentary.
9 September 2001 | by (Northern Ireland) – See all my reviews

Quite an interesting documentary about the modern classic 'The Shawshank Redemption' from its conception to production, through to the rather muted response received upon its original cinematic release. One of Britain's finest film critics, Mark Kermode, tries to discover how this rather routine prison movie (on paper, anyway) seems to have struck such an emotional chord with the public, whilst not pandering to the sickening sentimentality that seems to infect most mainstream Hollywood films. To some it is a spiritual story, to others modern myth and to others, simply a great movie with that rarest of modern cinematic qualities - a heart.

Fans of the movie will find this programme fascinating and revealing. A well-made documentary, if a little un-biased in its praise.
