The Shawshank Redemption Review

The Shawshank Redemption(1994) is an American drama movie set in 1947 and spanning 20 years of two prisoners at Shawshank who survive the place with no hope of ever coming out, but one still thrives on the 'dangerous' but 'good thing'. Based on a novella Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption by Stephen King, the movie hooks you from its very first scene. An innocent person, Andy Dufresne is convicted for two life sentences, and in the prison, he meets Red, a man who have spent almost twenty years there, and one, who has been here as long as he can remember (50 years). With a life different from anything in the outside world, the movie takes you on a tour of life of these people where corruption, hypocrisy of religion and authority, friendship and enmity are hard to miss.

Morgan Freeman as Red with a very natural acting, and Tim Robins as Andy Dufresne playing a young, bright and observant banker, the movie, written and directed by Frank Darabont has soothing background music and great cinematography.

A must, must watch.
