The Shawshank Redemption

The Shawshank Redemption is one of those films that goes largely unnoticed during its theatrical release. It was an under performer at the box office and snubbed by the Academy Awards, yet it currently resides on numerous top 10 lists, including 1st place at the Internet Movie Database!

It took me quite awhile to find the version of Shawshank I wanted to own on DVD, but finally I managed to track it down and here it is:

The Shawshank Redemption

Region 2 - Japan

2 DVD's
BFI Modern Classics Book (English)
The Short Story (Japanese)
Leather Journal Holder
Production Notes (Japanese)


Of course, it has just been released on Blu-ray and I will certainly be picking it up, but this edition was just too nice to pass up on.

it is a great edition...

got it for $80 brand new including EMS to Australia...well worth it...shame the short story is in Japanese, but everything else is English so it isn't a huge deal.
