Welcome to Skating Buffalo, my blog about movies. I want to share my passion and meet other movie fans on this amazing blog journey. So "fasten your seatbelts. It's going to be a bumpy night."
Luana - I love the movie - and I'm not surprised that this was one of Stephen King's "Dollar Babies." Look that up - you'll love it. However, that link apparently goes to a KGWN headline page - so when I hit the link I found out a wildfire is spreading out west; but got no cool Shawshank stories.
Thanks for the heads up about the link, Craig. As for the movie selling for a dollar, you just never know if a film is going to be a work of art. It all depends on how well it's executed. There have been wonderful King adaptions that were duds but could have been amazing.
