Mackey, and also features memorable appearances by John C. Reilly, Bob Gunton and David Strathairn. The film is often cited as one of the more underrated adaptations of King's work, but is somewhat obscured by the fact that it followed the release if The Shawshank Redeption and appeared amid a flurry of memorable (if often of low or questionable quality) film and television adaptations of King's work.

* DomesticAbuse: Joe, to Dolores but she soon puts a stop to that. Dolores also recalls that her father hit her mother from time to time: in those days, this was an accepted practice. At first, she accepts Joe hitting her because she was raised to believe that this is normal in a marriage, but when Joe's abuse becomes more brutal than anything she saw her father do, she decides that she won't take it any longer.
