''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

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.

Acting by every person in this movie are all Oscar worthy in my book, from Tim Robbins portrayin... read more

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

Description: Many of the most powerful stories are the soulful ones that teach us not to despair, and not to be swamped by sorrow. They remind us that hope is a precious and buoyant emotion that can give our lives substance and meaning. The Shawshank Redemption is based on a novella by Stephen King. Tim Robbins plays Andy, a banker who is sent to prison for the murder of his wife and her lover. The judge who sentences him finds him "a particularly remorseless and icy man." Andy's cool reserve and aloofness are not accepted well by the other inmates at Shawshank maximum-security prison in Maine. He is raped by some angry men and ... (more)

Some birds aren't meant to be caged.

“Warning: Spoilers

The Shawshank Redemption is written and directed by Frank Darabont. It is an adaptation of the Stephen King novella Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption. Starring Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman, the film portrays the story of Andy Dufresne (Robbins), a banker who is sentenced to two life sentences at Shawshank State Prison for apparently murdering his wife and her lover. Andy finds it tough going but finds solace in the friendship he forms with fellow inmate Ellis "Red" Redding (Freeman). While things start to pick up when the warden finds Andy a prison job more befitting his talents as a banker. However, the arrival of another inmate is going to vastly change things for all of them.

There was no fanfare or bunting put out for the release of the film” read more

What your favorite movie (really) says about you.. (57 movies items)

"If The Shawshank Redemption is your favorite movie...You love your IMDB scorecard - fuck that Rotten Tomatoes biased sheet. You love the grandeur and simplicity and the wonder and the spirit and the triumph and the despair and the solitude and the poetry and the beauty and the complexity and the injustice and the justice and the wondrous and resplendent amatory ardor in this film. You exclaim proudly that this is the best King adaption, bar none. "
