A prominent banker unjustly convicted of murder spends many years in the Shawshank prison. He is befriended by a convict who knows the ropes and helps him to cope with the frightening realities of prison life.
Fear can hold you prisoner. Hope can set you free.. Framed in the 1940s for the double murder of his wife and her lover, upstanding banker Andy Dufresne begins a new life at the Shawshank prison, where he puts his accounting skills to work for an amoral warden. During his long stretch in prison, Dufresne comes to be admired by the other inmates -- including an older prisoner named Red -- for his integrity and unquenchable sense of hope.. The Shawshank Redemption Wiki
You will watch this movie over and over again. This movie can give anyone hope. Love it.
An absolute masterpiece. It will stay with you long after it has finished. Darabont optioned the story from King for a dollar!
Even though it's still rated R for a ton of language, some violence and a couple sexual references, this movie still manages to depict a grusome life in prison without going full-on disturbing and nightmare-ish, as well as pull off a deeply moving story. Morgan Freeman and TIm Robbins are excellent actors and genuinely look confused and worried in some scenes. I nearly cried at some parts and I overall thought this movie was a masterpiece. Also, do you know the F-bomb dropping guard is played by the guy who voices Mr. Krabs? Listen closely to him... yeah, there's your childhood ruined.
If you don’t like this movie, you probably only have 2 or 3 marbles rolling upstairs
My all time favorite movie
I have watched this movie over and over and over again and i have not got tired of it yet.
This is the best movie ever made and anyone who thinks otherwise is wrong.
Everyone will talk about how their specific hobby can be counted as art because of the time and work put into it. This is one of those cases, this is not just a movie, it’s a work of art.
It doesn’t matter what point you see it at, but you all know that even if it’s five minutes from Morgan Freeman walking up on the beach, you will still watch those five minutes until Morgan Freeman walks up on the beach whenever you see it on television.
This movie is out of this world incredible. Really puts life into perspective spiritually seeing the grim ideology of being stuck in prison for life.
Timeless given period piece. This is a great movie.
I first saw this film when I was a kid. My cousin brought over the VHS. I was maybe 11 but even at that young age, I knew I had just watched something special. It's been my favourite movie ever since. I even did a book report on the original novella. I've yet to meet a person who says they didn't like this movie. Everyone agrees, it's one of the greatest movies ever.
Truly is one of the best movies ever made!!!!
I absolutely cannot get into the movie, cannot identify with the characters, cannot understand why they were concerned with the things they did. What's very clear to me is that this movie/book was intended for the mass-majority of the English-speaking world who've never hit the slammer
This movie will never be outdone, the cast, the story, the acting and the brilliance of having Morgan seamlessly narate the movie is the real magic you dont notice the first time you watch it.No other movie has had this formula.
I was just spellbound when I first saw this. The performances were unbelievably good, and the story was very good. Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman were just excellent. Bravo!
this has to be my favourite movie of all time easily the best ever made
Good movie Yankee doodle went home writing outpolling dismiss big black dicks
The Shawshank Redemption is the best movie ever. A great story and great acting and it surprised me a lot. I recommend it to everyone 12 and up. Even though it deals with heavy topics it should be watched by everyone.
Brilliant storytelling - Steven kings masterpiece! Leaves a deep impression!
Boxing has Ali, basketball has Jordan......films have this 🔟/🔟
I love this movie. It's such a brilliant story of freedom, redemption, and hope. Everything is perfect! The story amazing! The ending had me in tears. Easily one of the most powerful movies ever made. Note: I was a bit disappointed in the abundence of foul language, but considering it's in a prison you can expect it. But I thought it just went a bit too much over the top. Not for children.
Best Movie Ever!!!
Thought provoking. Amazing.
This movie is well worth the money and is amazing. I couldn't take my eyes off the screen the entire movie and it is just a great representation of the lengths people will go to to get redemption. IT is just stunning and i enjoyed every minute. I will warn you that certain scenes are quite harrowing and emotional and are not meant to be seen by younger readers. I have to say that this movie was amazing.
The best movie ever buy it now the movie is so good that I cried
Number one movie of all time without a doubt, truly amazing piece of work
Arguably the best movie I've seen. Very satisfying and enjoyable.
Easily one of the greatest of all time, The Shawshank redemption has a special characteristic that only the greatest movies share, it deeply moves you and makes you think about life. The movie should be enjoyed by everyone before they die. A must-see
This movie WILL definitively be a pleasure to watch and one of the best made movie i have ever saw! It includes the idea of hope in prison, institutionalization and also freedom. The actors are formidable and Frank Darabont directed this movie with success! Buy it! You won't regret it.
I love this movie!!! :)
A story of substance, character and hope. The acting is wonderfully convincing. One of my all time favorites. A nice divergence from all the 'guns and shooting' movies.
