Fear can hold you prisoner. Hope can set you free.

''There are places in this world that aren't made out of stone. That there's something inside... that they can't get to, that they can't touch. That's yours.''

Two imprisoned men bond over a number of years, finding solace and eventual redemption through acts of common decency.

Tim Robbins: Andy Dufresne

Not a single review for this one? I'm shocked.

It's number 1 IMDB (ignore the fact that Godfather, which has less votes and lower IMDB score is still holding #1 spot for past year, Shawshank is the TRUE number 1 IMDB movie). And the highest rated popular movie on here as well.

But i guess a movie like this doesn't really need reviews; it's absolutely perfect, and... read more

What can be said about this movie that hasn't already been said before?

Shawshank is based on the novella by Stephen King and is about Andy Dufresne, a banker wrongly put in prison for murdering his wife and her lover, and how he handles life inside Shawshank State Prison.

Worst Movie Theater Experiences (7 movies items)

"I went to one of those "classic screenings," where a theater will once a week show a different old-fashioned movie, for this film. About 20 minutes into the film, the fire alarm went off. It turned out to be a false alarm, so we were able to stay in the theater, but it took them 5 minutes to turn the alarm off, and then another 10 minutes for them to rewind and start the movie back up."

500 Essential Cult Movies (502 movies items)

" In their performances Robbins and Freeman just exude dignity and quiet intensity, as if they drank too much of it the night before and are sweating it out through their pores during each take. But that they shine so brightly is due to their relationship and the story as a whole being so expertly crafted- though the film could very well cross the line into melodrama or sentimentality, the two leads and their bevy of funny and tragic friends keep everything firmly in drama territory. "
