Synopsis:
Wrongly accused city banker Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins) arrives at Shawshank Prison in 1947 after receiving a double life sentence for the brutal murders of his wife and her lover. He discovers that when they send you to Shawshank for life...that's exactly what they take. His quiet strength slowly earns him the respect and friendship of the prison fixer Red (Morgan Freeman). He also becomes popular with the warden and prison guards, as he is able to use his banking experience to help the corrupt officials amass fortunes. But Andy's seemingly stoic acceptance of his unjust imprisonment hides a fierce determination for freedom and provides a unique chance to change his fate.

Thought provoking excellence - The Shawshank Redemption review by Wayne Bevan

Spoiler Alert
20/06/2005

This Stephen King adaptation leaves an after-thought like no other movie I have watched. Set in Shawshank prison, the cast present a very believable mixture of personalities that have wound up serving time with each other. Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman set aside from the rest and tell the story of their prison lives from an intelligent and moralistic standpoint, which takes you on a ride of different emotions and a truly remarkable twist.

Outstanding - The Shawshank Redemption review by JD

Spoiler Alert

Tim Robbins is the most under-rated actor ever. He is superb. The film is about long-term imprisonment and the plot is OK, some of the acting is so-so but Robbins and Freeman are so good it doesn't really matter.
