This review is from: Shawshank Redemption [VHS] (VHS Tape)
It's hard to imagine the film that exceeds this one in quality. If I were a member of the Academy, I would have voted this film Best Picture over "Forrest Gump" in 1994. The story is original, engrossing, and ranges from funny to tragic, as it takes us through the trials and tribulations of an innocent man sent to Shawshank Prison. The acting is superb and the film ends magnificently. A must buy for fans of excellent dramas.
