''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.

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. "

""I think it is the excitement only a free man can feel, a free man at the start of a long journey whose 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." When asked what crime you are guilty of, in prison yards like that of Shawshank State Penitentiary, the proper response is always a mock "I didn't do it". But in banker turned wrongly accused convict Andy Dufresne'"

1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die (1990's) (124 movies items)

" Notes: Many people find it weird that this flick has been on the 1st place of the IDMDb 250 for so many years but even if you don't think that it is that good, you have to agree that this movie is definitely the stuff of legend. I mean, when it came out, almost nobody saw it. Eventually, it still managed to get 7 nominations at the Academy Awards but even there, it was snobbed and won nothing. Still, gradually, it gained a cult status and is now considered by many as the best movie ever made. "
