This movie is absolutely, hands down, my all time fave. It's a story of hope and friendship. I've probably seen it a hundred times and will probably see it 100 more....

Gretest film ever made

Best movie of all time.

By genobowers
Out of any film that has ever been made, this is my far the best one. It's just so special and moving. Such a deep and touching message about life and the institutionalization aspects of prison life....
