The Shawshank Redemption. Where to start? What a film. The Shawshank Redemption tells the story of Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins), a successful banker who is sentenced to two consecutive life sentences after being found guilty of a crime he did not commit. The film portrays Andy’s unique way of dealing with this new and tortuous life and chronicles the friends - most notably a wise long-term inmate named Red (Morgan Freeman), and enemies – especially ‘The Sisters’ and the warden - he makes along the way. The film itself does not try and present prison life as cushy or comfortable, indeed it depicts prison life in Shawshank as very brutal but such brutality is essential and helps to convey just what an incredible and resilient character Andy is. For many, the best film of all time, The Shawshank Redemption is a truly remarkable tale of one man’s courage and his stubborn refusal to give up hope despite the terrible situation in which he finds himself. A truly inspirational and life affirming film about the power of hope and perseverance which will give you goosebumps and make you cry in equal measure. Could not come more highly recommended. Utterly brilliant.
