Succeeds beautifully in looking at why we love this film!
9 September 2001 | by (Dublin, Ireland) – See all my reviews

In 1994 The Shawshank Redemption came out into cinemas around the world, and although it received 7 Oscar nominations (lost out to Forrest Gump), it received little publicity, and was a technical "flop". A year later it was the biggest video rental on the planet, and today is hailed by film fans as one of the greatest films ever made. This documentary looks into why it didn't do well until video release, why critics didn't like the film & why it is now loved by many.

Interviews include Tim Robbins, Morgan Freeman & Frank Darabont, which garners more respect to this entertaining documentary, hosted by Mark Kermode. All in all it gives the viewer a greater understanding of why so many love this film! A must see for fans!!
