Shawshank Redemption is one of the few movies that appeals and elevates you to another plane. This movie can at best be described as poignant with excellent performances by Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman.
The movie is about a man wrongly accused for the murder of his wife and sentenced for life. The hope he has of being free someday and the manner in which he achieves it is extraordinary. Among other movies that rely on special effects and exaggerated emotions to captivate the audience, Shawshank Redemption stands tall, depending entirely on the performances of the artistes and the taut screenplay. No wonder it is high on the list as one of the best movies of all time. For more details and some interesting dialogues visit the link above. What follows is the tag-line for the movie.
