What is the movie The Shawshank Redemption about?
To be honest, this is personally my favorite Hollywood movie of all time - The Shawshank Redemption is not something that can be compared to any other similar movie. There are several factors for that, and the first one is the incredible story. It is about two men in jail who have spent a lot of time together and one of them, Andy Dufresne (played by Tim Robins) claims that he is not guilty. Morgan Freeman plays Ellis Boys Red Redding, and he is also the narrator during the whole movie. We love his voice and it makes the whole experience while watching The Shawshank Redemption much more interesting. One of the important facts that we would like to highlight is that this movie is still on top of the lists even tho it was released twenty years ago. It has very high ratings and it has made many actors quite famous. Director Frank Darabont and co-writer Stephen King decided to write a story about a very successful banker who is sentenced to life imprisonment because of the murder of his wife and another man that she has been with in their bed. The movie is set in the 40's and that is one of the additional reasons to love Andy even more, since he is actually a prisoner that is totally unusual, especially for that period of the 20th century.

I have never seen such an amazing film since I watched “The Shawshank Redemption”. Shawshank encompasses friendships, hardships, hopes, and dreams. And what is so great about the film is that it moves you, it gives you hope. Even though the circumstances between the characters are quite different, you don't feel that far removed from what the characters are going through. It is a simple movie , yet it has an everlasting message. Frank Darabont didn't need to put any kind of outlandish special effects to get us to love this film, the narration and the acting does that for him.

Hmm, i can say that when i feel sad and depressed i always watch “The Shawshank Redemption” and by some interesting magic my life doesn’t look that desperate anymore, and the interesting thing is that although i watched it many times i still cannot get bored of it. I read the book first of all, and only after it i saw the movie. I cannot express how much joy i felt while watching it! It was so genius! Everything in the movie was perfect, this way i never regretted all the time i have spent on watching this movie.It is widely opened for everyone. And the subject line is very special as well. A man got into prison for killing his wife and her lover, but the interesting thing that he never done it, but only due to the fact he was not able to prove it he went to the jail. And eventually a good and innocent person has made good friends even at jail. Well, i will not describe all the movie in here, because it will be no use to watch it after that, but i can say that the justice by the end of the movie was done!!

Why?! Why this disgusting movie the biggest amount of people considers to be a masterpiece of the world’s detective genre?! I am sure that there will be a lot of people who will argue with my opinion here, but i really can’t get it, what is so special about this movie. For those times (it was filmed in 1995), the “shocking” final was not original at all, all the things in the movie were well considered by the classic detective books of the last century. I think even a child since the first minutes can figure out who is the main and awful villain. This movie is amazingly boring, i cannot say that the actors were bad, mmm no not at all, but they were kind of sad and not outstanding. The only pleasure that i felt after watching it, were seeing the cast titles in the end of the movie, as that was the moment i realized here it is the end of my torture. My personal opinion is that there is a bunch of other movies that are really great and deserve the time spent on watching them.

Usually i look for a movie while using various ratings, and this is how i found the “Shawshank Redemption”. Frankly speaking i was avoiding it for a very long time, because i never was attracted by movies with a plot about prison. But i forced myself to see it, and could not regret that, although the movie was filmed in 1994, and is older than my Grandma ))). But i was surprised that it is of a good quality. I decided to give it a try as it was filmed on the basis of a book written by Stephen King! Each minute the subject is more and more intriguing, which makes it impossible to take my eyes off the screen, although it lasted for two hours and a half, i think i never was able to watch same movie for that long time! Andy a successful banker is being accused of the murder of his wife and her lover, and he is sent to jail till the rest of his life, where he proves to be a calm and nice person. He is smart and was able to do machinations with the prison’s principal, but it didn’t made the last one releasing him. And by the end of the movie he will show how smart he really is and that he is able to twiss and toss everyone around.

I heard a lot about this movie, and for a very long time, but found time in order to watch it only yesterday, and i should say it took my breath away from the first movies of it, i didn’t even noticed how almost three hours of the movie have passed. It was filmed in 1994, according to Stephen King’s book. After it i will certainly read the book! I liked the performing crew very much as well. One more time i got sure in my belief that Morgan Freeman is performing only in the best movies ever.
It is amazing how many things a person can do, and with all those things to be still able to stay a person and enjoy life! How life is breaking people who are sitting at the prison, some people get used to it, and some of them consider it home they cannot live without, but Andy was on the top of all those things.
I can say that it is very rare when i can say that i completely liked the movie, but this movie is beyond my expectations i would grant it with twelve out of ten possible points! I recommend it to all the people who haven’t seen it yet, and even to those who already saw it, to do it one more time!
