The Shawshank Redemption – Frank Darabont

Hi everybody! Today, I would like to speak about the film The Shawshank Redemption . This movie was directed by Frank Darabont in 1994 and it was inspired by Stephen King’s novella « Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption » published in 1982.

Andy Dufresne, a young banker, is unfairly sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of his wife and her lover. He is imprisoned to Shawshank, the most severe penitentiary of the State and proclaimed his innocence for a long time. During his detention, he met Red, an another prisoner imprisoned for several years, with whom he became very friendly. Both, they are going to try to restore the truth.

It should be noted that, in the beginning, this movie was a commercial failure but it is now considered as a cult movie ! It is considered as being « culturally, historically, and aesthetically important » !

This movie is beautiful and full of emotion. I think it is one of movies which is necessary to see! Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins are great !

« We sent you here for life, and it is exactly what we take you »
