Film critic and presenter Mark Kermode explores the fascination and praise audiences, fans and critics have behind the classic The Shawshank Redemption (1994) and how its importance grew higher over the years despite being an overlooked film when it was released and not getting any Oscars victories when it was nominated as one of the Best Pictures of the Year.Written by

'Shawshank: The Redeeming Feature' is a documentary about the film 'The Shawshank Redemption', which became a big seller in video sales but not in the cinema. (The reasons for this are discussed.) This documentary discusses the popularity of the film and goes behind the scenes. It also talks about the characters and some of the society's importances of this film in religion. This is a pretty thorough and insightful documentary, and it is available on the DVDs of the film. This is a short and to-the-point and interesting documentary that compliments the film well. See it if you enjoyed watching the film and want to learn a little bit about the background.
