Today, let’s talk about the very famous Movie—”The Shawshank Redemption.”
This movie is directed by Frank Darabont and stars Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman.
This is an epic film–a motivational movie. The film gives form to that invisible force, the spirit salvation. From the film, I came to realize that we should have a hope in life, even though in the movie Red says, “Hope is a dangerous thing, is the root cause of mental anguish.’’ But I also believe that as Andy (played by Tim Robbins) said, “Hope–that is a beautiful thing and probably is the best thing. Good things are never going to die.” So we have to face reality and face life, but there is hope.
The main story in “The Shawshank Redemption” is about a banker–Andy. He gets tried and convicted for the murder of his wife. He is then taken into Shawshank prison. In prison he meets Red (played by Morgan Freeman) and this is the only lucky thing that happens to him. Red gives him a rock hammer to build chess pieces. Andy use his banking knowledge to help the warden fix his tax problems, which makes him popular with the guards. The warden gives him a single cell and allows him to have some personal items. He always gets a fancy poster of a beautiful woman to keep his dream alive. Actually, he is using the posters to cover his attempt to escape from prison by using his rock hammer.
One day, a new prisoner comes to the prison and changes Andy. He knows the truth about Andy’s story, that someone killed Andy’s wife and blamed it on Andy. Andy tells the warden, but the warden worries that Andy knows lots of his secrets and he refuses to help him. The warden also kills the prisoner who knows the secret. He had dug a tunnel out for twenty years. Now Andy finally makes the decision that he has to escape this place.
One idea that caught my attention in the film came when Red says, “Some birds are caged, their feathers are just too bright because.” Andy is a brave and intelligent bird; he needs the freedom of flying in the blue sky. The dark prison could not void or smother his desire for freedom. The cruel environment didn’t overwhelm him. He gave himself the hope of freedom.
All this and more is why “The Shawshank Redemption” is the top movie on a lot of movie websites like Internet Movie Data Base. If you like the epic hero movie “The Shawshank Redemption” will be a great choice for you.
