Tom Cruise attended a 10-year reunion screening of The Shawshank Redemption on Thursday night (23SEP04) - because he counts it among his all-time favourite movies.

The MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE star excitedly arrived at the Los Angeles get-together and rubbed shoulders with Morgan Freeman, who starred in the 1994 movie.

Cruise says of the film, "It's what I love in a movie. It takes you on a journey and at the end it's life-affirming."

The actor was also at the bash in support of the film's screenwriter and director Frank Darabont, who has written Cruise's upcoming MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE III movie.
