As I Lay Dying - William Faulkner
The Rainmaker
Can't think of any at the moment but these might help: I've just thought of one, "The Shawshank Redemption" the hero escapes from prison during a storm, the rain must symbolise something, look through the links for a summary of the book and film. Does this help?

The Shawshank Redemption by Stephen King

Sound Bites: This link has some great pictures that I’m sure you could use:


1) "Get busy living or get busy dying...": Wav

2) "And that's how it came to pass, that on the second-to-last day of the job, the convict crew that tarred the plate factory roof in the spring of '49 wound up sitting in a row at ten o'clock in the morning, drinking icy cold Bohemia style beer, courtesy of the hardest screw that ever walked a turn at Shawshank State Prison...The colossal prick even managed to sound magnanimous. We sat and drank with the sun on our shoulders and felt like free men. Hell, we could have been tarring the roof of one of our own houses. We were the Lords of all Creation. As for Andy, he spent that break hunkered in the shade, a strange little smile on his face, watching us drink his beer...You could argue he'd done it to curry favor with the guards, or maybe make a few friends among us cons. Me, I think he did it just to feel normal again, if only for a short while.": Wav

3) Red (Morgan Freeman): They send you here for life and that's exactly what they take. Wav 46 KB

4) Red: And that's how it came to pass. That on the second to last day of the job. The convict crew that tarred the plate factory roof in the spring of '49 wound up sitting in a row at 10:00 in the morning drinking icy cold Bohemian style beer. Wav 347 KB

5) Red: The first nights the toughest. No doubt about it. They march you in naked as the day you were born. Skin burning, and half blind from that delousing **** they put on ya. And when they put you in that cell, and those bars slam home. That's when you know it's for real. Whole life blown away in the blink of an eye. Nothing left, but all the time in the world to think about it. Wav 312 KB

6) Red: I find I'm so excited I can barely sit still, or hold a thought in my head. I think it's the excitement only a free man can feel. A free man at the start of a long journey who's conclusion is uncertain. I hope I can make it across the border. I hope to see my friend, and shake his hand. I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams. I hope. Wav 432 KB
