City Banker Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins) is in Shawshank State Prison after receiving a double life sentence for murder. There he meets Red (Morgan Freeman) and also forms friendships with the warden and prison guards. Andy soon finds that you either get on with living or you get on with dying.

Adapted from a novella taken from Stephen King's 'Different Seasons' (a collection of stories that would also spawn STAND BY ME and APT PUPIL), THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION marked the first foray into the realms of the writer for director Frank Darabont. In the years since the release of THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, Darabont has directed two other King Adaptations, THE GREEN MILE and THE MIST. Considered to be a financial failure upon its release, and overshadowed by PULP FICTION and FORREST GUMP at the Oscars, THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION has since been re-evaluated as something of a modern classic.

As much as this is a brilliant film - and it does have extras....can it really warrant being 5.99? - how many more times can it be repackaged?

You could pick the single disc version for £1 earlier in the year

Why does everyone rave about this film? it's almost as if it's fashionable to say "it's my favourite film" over the years I have met quite a few people who said, "my favourite film ever" about this movie, yes I've seen it, but I don't remember much about it & everytime it's on Hotukdeals it always goes red hot, did I miss something when I saw this film? I'm not saying it's a bad film, but I certainly have seen hundreds of better movies.

(I'm now expecting all the people who think it's fashionable to list this as thier favourite film to start slating me)

Sorry, it IS a great film in my opinion (not saying it to be fashionable). But I wouldn't say it's my all-time fave. I like Midnight Express and Papillion too. I just love prison movies I guess :-D

Yep it is a top film but I do agree that there are far too many "band-waggoners" knocking about.

I was in the boozer a while back eith some of our kid's student types and one of em was rabbiting about it for ages before it dawned on me he'd never seen it... The tp!!!

One of the best films ever made!

gotta say it is one of the best films ever made. Remember seeing it in an empty cinema when it came out though.......

Yeah, SUPERB film. Not gonna be to everyones tastes I guess. But a crackin` deal!!

it's a very watchable film but where on earth did they find enough to fill 3 discs? thought it was amazing when i got 4 disc version of superman 1 lol

I have got this on a single DVD. There's absolutely NO WAY that this needs to be split on to 3 DVDs. It's nowhere near as long as Lord of The Rings or The Bible.

Save some shelf space and buy a version on a single DVD.

I rented the extras disks from lovefilm for Shawshank Redempton (as I've had the 1 disc version for years, and wondered what I was missing). If these disks contain the same material, they are not worth the extra £3-4 you pay over the one disc price. They were really boring.

It doesn't quote DTS on the Play site , have you confirmed this elsewhere ?

This one does :

play.com/DVD…tml


This posted one doesn't have DTS it seems :

Nahhh - just wait till Play have their 80% off sale!!

Excellent film, but 14 years old and £6, not for me. I'll stick to the VHS one I got for 50p!!

Isn't someones favourite film down to their personal taste.

Its a brilliant film ( only in my view ! )

Banned

my favourite film - period!

Agree in that it is a fantastic film.
Not sure if it's a hot deal though.

Best film ever, not a great deal though...how can i vote cool ?

I've seen this film about 7 or 8 times now, and it never loses its appeal.
A truly uplifting film and the most enjoyable film i've ever watched.

Hot btw

Now £3.99
