What's interesting is that Shawshank took place from 1947 til 1967. Homesick takes place from 1944 til ???? Could it be that that type of man doesn't exist in Today's World? I don't know. Gregory Peck played one in TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD; a real metronome of a man. Even tempered, an internal timing device regulating his actions..... I'd like to think that there could still be men like that in 2006.
