"The Shawshank Redemption!" Based on "Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption," a novella by Stephen King. The original is very dry reading (almost textbook reading) and is the only thing Steven King has written that I haven't read more than once. The movie stayed true to the original story and was great.
