The Shawshank Redemption

In this adaptation of a Stephen King short story, Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins) is an innocent man in Shawshank Penitentiary, jailed for life for the murder of his wife. He forms an unlikely friendship with fellow lifer Red (Morgan Freeman), as he adjusts to a future behind bars.

The film is universally loved and it’s easy to see why. It’s a classic battle between good and evil that avoids cliché while making the concept of hope seem so powerful and liberating that only those with a heart of stone won’t be moved. Every performance is fantastic and the finale is impossibly uplifting, a worthy ending to a movie that has proven nearly impossible to dislike.

It's not a great movie despite what many people say. It had great emotional impact for many but I didn't get that "you had to be there" kind of feeling. Instead, I thought the feelgood factor very much depended upon one twist in the plot.

Has to be one of best movies, so many people say it is their favourite, and as far as a story line, and a powerful message in the movie for 'not giving up hope', you can't go past it. Rightfully best story and best movie.
