Framed in the 1940s for the double murder of his wife and her lover, upstanding banker Andy Dufresne begins a new life at the Shawshank prison, where he puts his accounting skills to work for an amoral warden.

Review for The Shawshank Redemption

Author: thommo_nz

There is a reason why this movie is at the top of any popular list your will find. Very strong performances from lead actors and a story line from the literary brilliance of Stephen King (and no, its not a horror). Sufficient drama and depth to keep you interested and occupied without stupefying your brain. It is the movie that has something for everyone.
