The Shawshank Redemption

One of my favorite movies of all time - this is the story of an innocent man's struggle to maintain dignity amid the brutality of a corrupt prison. You might be surprised that the story was written by Stephen King.

    What a great movie! In 'The Shawshank Redemption', Andy Dufresne is a young and successful banker whose life changes drastically when he is convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of his wife and her lover. Set in the 1940's, the film shows how Andy, with the help of his friend Red, the prison entrepreneur, turns out to be a most unconventional prisoner. The film stars Tim Robbins as Andy Dufresne, Morgan Freeman as Ellis Boyd 'Red' Redding and Bob Gunton as Warden Samuel Norton. One of the best movie ever made - it is a story about hope and freedom. A must-see!

    Possibly my favorite movie of all time. Definitely top 10. Two amazing actors, Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman, who only appear in great films.

    TIM robbins is so young and handsome in this GREAT movie. Robbins plays a banker in jail on a murder charge. He believe he was also nominated for an academy award. Extra points for Tim!

    Another film adapted from a Stephen King story. This critically acclaimed film is about a quiet and humble man accused and convicted of killing his wife. As the audience, we are unsure if he actually committed the crime. This movie is outstanding! If you haven't seen it, see it immediately. Its long, but you will appreciate every minute and wish for more.

    again, another brilliant movie without having something blow up. It gets heavy at times during some scenes when the leading man gets attacked by fellow inmates, and when they show a few of his friends die. But the feeling you get when he is standing in the rain finally free, priceless.

    Two imprisoned men bond over a number of years, finding solace and eventual redemption through acts of common decency. I love this story, It's shocked me deeply!
