The Shawshank Redemption
Revisit the movie that’s pretty much on every ‘greatest films’ list.
Dir Frank Darabont
With Tim Robbins, Morgan Freeman, Bob Gunton, William Sadler
Convicted of the double murder of his wife and her lover, Andy Dufresne is sentenced to life at Shawshank State Penitentiary. Frank Darabont’s masterful prison drama was something of a box-office failure, but the film grew steadily in popularity over the years and now serves as a staple on most ‘greatest film’ lists – a fitting testament to the enduring impact of King’s non-horror output.
