* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: Definitely subverted, as the scene in which Dolores stands up to Joe's physical abuse by smashing his face with a cream pitcher is chilly and definitely not played for laughs.

* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: Definitely subverted, as the scene in which Dolores stands up to Joe's physical abuse by smashing his face with a cream pitcher is chilly and definitely not played for laughs. It also has very bad consequences; Selena sees it and Joe uses that to turn her against Dolores, portraying her as the aggressor.

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.
