Two by Stephen King

In anticipation of the October 10 IU Auditorium touring premiere of Ghost Brothers of Darkland County, the brilliant collaboration between John Mellencamp, Stephen King, and T-Bone Burnett, IU Cinema presents two films based on King’s work. A prolific novelist and master of suspense, dozens of King’s novels have been adapted to films. Ghost Brothers offers his debut as a playwright and he delivers everything one could ask for. See for more details.

Academy Award®-winner Tim Robbins stars as a prominent banker unjustly convicted of murder who spends many years in the Shawshank prison. He is befriended by a lifelong convict (Morgan Freeman) who knows the ropes and helps him to cope with the frightening realities of prison life. The film is based upon a Stephen King short story titled Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption, and was nominated for 7 Academy Awards®, including Best Adapted Screenplay, for Frank Darabont.
