    Would you believe it? I can't find a single CD/DVD of "The Shawshank Redemption" here.

    I've read the book though, and absolutely loved it.

    I feel sorry for you. IMO Greatest movie ever, in front of The Godfather but that's just my opinion. Have you seen it, or just don't have the DVD?

    Btw, yes the book rules.

    Yep, Scarlett's fantastic. I loved Lost in Translation and after seeing her play her character so well in that movie, I'm officially a fan.
