The Shawshank Redemption
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.
If you ever feel down,
If you ever feel like giving up,
If you ever feel like nothing is gonna workout,
If you ever feel hopeless,
If you ever feel like dying,
Watch this film. It is a miraculous medicine. It is a wonderful movie.
Shawshank may not be THE best film ever made, but is certainly one of them.
One of the most impressive King adaptations, and shows the entire cast at their greatest.
It expresses the need for friendship, bravery, hope, and above all - freedom.
Out of the three genre-defining classics released in 1994, The Shawshank Redemption was the one that ended up bearing the maximum brunt. First commercially by failing to recover its budget for it debuted in theatres together with one of cinema's greatest watershed events; Pulp Fiction. And then at Academy Awards where it was nominated for seven Oscars yet failed to win any, thanks to the sweeping show by the critics’ darling, Forrest Gump.
But life ever since has been very kind to this film, and both critics & viewers have embraced its uplifting story of hope & friendship with remarkable amount of respect, love & kindness. Today, The Shawshank Redemption enjoys a position that’s arguably even higher than the two classics which eclipsed…

”Let me tell you something my friend. Hope is a dangerous thing. Hope can drive a man insane.”
Why The Shawshank Redemption is such a popular movie? It is well-made and well-paced, Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman are perfect in their roles and Frank Darabont’s ability of narrating the story without hiccups and his charming way of using multiple supporting characters to add more depth to the story of his two protagonists make the experience enjoyable and rewarding. But can a movie reach the success of Shawshank only by being cinematically perfect? There should be some kind of an explanation for its matchless popularity, but first you need to pick a keyword and then form…
It's been about five years since I watched The Shawshank Redemption and what strikes me most about it is how restrained the story telling is. Some have said it drags, especially the second half, but I can't really see where the seconds could be shaved off. I want a story that takes its time. The action and the pacing is in their faces, in the minds of these men, watching them cope with their incarceration and what it does to a man. Just like for Andy and Red, time moves slowly, but meaningfully.
I think the brilliance of the film has to be due to the wonderful performances from Tim Robbins and, especially, Morgan Freeman. The voice over might seem…
My eleventh viewing. I just can't help but finish this when it's on.
This is nostalgic simplicity with pure, cinematic storytelling. It also has Freeman's career best performance, enhanced by his beautiful voice from a time before it became a trademark.
Easy to hate for its popular status. Easier to love for its qualities.
And boy do I love it.
This the male equivalent to "The Notebook" - it's a full-force drama that will make the most stone faced man break down in tears. In all honesty, though... this film makes "The Notebook" look like a dog turd.
"The world went and got itself in a hurry" scene is so heartbreaking that I'm tearing up right now just thinking about it. The scene with the song is incredibly uplifting and a powerful character-defining moment.
A true masterpiece of a movie.

Absolute clarsic darling.
Let's face it. Without Thomas Newman's score, this movie would be an 8/10. Tops.
I know that I often say I can't review a movie, but this time I mean it. The only thing I can say for sure is that, in my opinion, this movie holds the silver medal in all cinema, and that still seems too low. The feeling each person gets, at least according to my research, is incomparable to anything else. This motion picture is to making a great movie as I am to writing a horrible review. One of the best.
In my personal opinion, I don't think you can really call yourself "A Film Lover" if you haven't seen this one.
One of the best movies of all time.
This film was very interesting and tear-jerking. It kept me interested throughout the entire film and there was very good foreshadowing towards the end. The acting of each character was very well done, Morgan Freeman has always been one of my favourite actors which made it even better.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
