The Shawshank Redemption has remained at the top of the IMDB’s Top 250 list for many years, despite stiff competition from The Godfather and Pulp Fiction. Now it returns to the big screen in honour of its 20th anniversary.
Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins) is convicted of the murder of his wife and her lover, and sent to Shawshank Prison to serve two consecutive life sentences. While inside, he befriends fellow lifer Red (Morgan Freeman) and together they battle to survive the evils of prison life, under the watchful eyes of corrupt prison warden Norton.
A life-affirming movie that remains as powerful today as it was on its initial release.
