Starring: Tim Robbins, Morgan Freeman, Bob Gunton, William Sadler
Frank Darabont presents the story of Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins) based on the Stephen King novella, in one of the most highly appraised films of all time. Andy, a successful banker, is sentenced to life imprisonment at Shawshank prison after being convicted of the murder of his wife, and her lover in 1947. Although denying these crimes, Andy spends 19 years adapting to prison life with the help of a long-term inmate, Ellis “Red” Redding (Morgan Freeman). His intelligence and banking skills win over the warden and prison staff, improving the prison library and opening up the possibility of escape.
