The Shawshank Redemption

The Shawshank Redemption

What is “The Shawshank Redemption”?

I am sure most of you would not be able to answer my question so I am going to tell you now.

Among  a million movies in the world, The Shawshank Redemption is one of the best films for me. Not Because It is ranked the 1st place in IMDb’s “Top 250” list based on over a million votes (9.3 out of 10) and is considered one of the best movie of all time, but because it seriously touched my heart when I watched it. Through 142 minutes of the movie, no any moments I could stop and think about anything. The plot of the movie is dismal but sometimes can be also very funny.

The movie tells the story of Andy Dufresne, a banker who was sentenced to life in Shawshank State Prison for the murder of his wife and her lover despite his claims of innocence. During his time at the prison, he got a great friend who always helped him to survive in the hell prison. This is Ellis Boyd “Red” Redding. And he also found himself protected by the guards after the warden begins using him in his money laundering operation. The movie focused on the friendship between Andy and Red during 18 years in prison of Andy. It told us how difficult life is to stay in the prison. But time gone, finally Andy had succeeded to escape from the prison and brought himself the freedom.

If there is only one word to define this movie, it would be “powerful”.

And if you are looking for a great old movie, let pick it up “The Shawshank Redemption”.
