STEPHEN KING'S THE SHINING
Made seventeen years after Stanley Kubrick's claustrophobic masterpiece, this sprawling adaptation of Stephen King's best-seller hews more closely to the author's intended vision. King famously hated Kubrick's adaptation, and he steps in to write this version, which takes its time etching the tale of an alcoholic caretaker's spiraling descent into madness. With Steven Weber, Rebecca De Mornay, Elliott Gould, and Melvin Van Peebles.
