This film is set in a prison in the 1930s, I think. The main character isa prison guard, and the film is about the relationship he has with oneof the prisoners. This man has committed an awful crime and he’s ondeath row, but he’s really a gentle giant. He’s even afraid of the dark!
Nominated for seven Academy Awards®including Best Film and Best Actor, this filmis an extraordinary tale of hope, friendshipand survival inside a maximum security prison.City Banker, Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins), arrived at Shawshank Prison in1947, convicted of two brutal murders. He received a double life sentence.He discovers that when they send you to Shawshank State Prison for life … thatis exactly what they take.Within the confines of Shawshank, Andy forms an unlikely friendship withthe prison “fixer” Red (Morgan Freeman). He also becomes popular with thewarden and the prison’s guards, as Andy is able to use his banking experienceto help the corrupt officials amass personal fortunes.With an extraordinary twist in the tail, Andy findsthat survival comes down to a simple choice –get busy living or get busy dying.
