The Shawshank Redemption Review: Andy Dufresne is a young and successful banker whose life changes drastically when he is convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of his wife and her lover. Set in the 1940’s, the film shows how Andy, with the help of his friend Red, the prison entrepreneur, turns out to be a most unconventional prisoner.
Shawshank encompasses friendships, hardships, hopes, and dreams. And what is so great about Shawshank Redemption is that it moves you, it gives you hope. Even though the circumstances between the characters and the viewers are quite different, you don’t feel that far removed from what the characters are going through.
Shawshank Redemption is a simple film, 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.
