Quando comecei a assistir mais filmes eu precisava de um caminho pra seguir e caí de cabeça em um monte…
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 heavyweights 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 it…
best movie of all time
what a time to be alive
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.

”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…
Still the best Stephen King adaptation around. I absolutely love Tim Robbins's Andy Dufresne, which in itself almost warrants a perfect score. Very well written, and great performances across the board.
Something about this story made me think about it for days. Wonderful narrative. Very memorable characters. God-tier character writing.
A Classic !
I wish I could tell you there was a greater film than this. I wish I could tell you that.
The latest chapter in my quest to culture myself, and I have to say, The Shawshank Redemption has to be pretty close to the perfect movie. It was suspenseful but still incredibly heartfelt and moving. The story did not spare on details but also did not drag on. I really couldn't come up with anything negative to say about the movie. While it will never reach the special place in my heart reserved for intellectual thrillers and hard sci-fi, it is still easy for me to say the film for the masterpiece that it is.
" I guess it comes down a simple choice: Get busy living, or get busy dying."
This is my favorite film of all time. Everything about this film is pure perfection.
The actors were all brilliant. The soothing voice of Morgan Freeman feels like you're in this film. Wow. I'm speechless.
shoulda been gayer ofc but soothing to fall asleep to
"You know what the Mexicans say about the Pacific? They say it has no memory. That's where I want to live the rest of my life."
This is an amazing tale of character. And I love these characters. You care so much about them that you wish you were in their world - and it's a prison! Absolutely Classic in every way.
