The Shawshank Redemption

Frank Darabont

Affirming the strength of ‘hope’, this film offers its viewers with a kind of emotional enlightenment of the highest order. Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins are terrific actors as is the importance to small details that the director emphasises on. The montage of shots showing an aged prisoner unable to adjust to life outside prison drives one to tears. I recommend this picture both for its masterful storytelling and its technical execution. It simply commands a viewing.
