Chronicles the experiences of a formerly successful banker Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins) as a prisoner in the gloomy jailhouse of Shawshank after being found guilty of a heinous crime he did not commit. The film portrays the man's unique way of dealing with his new, torturous life; along the way he befriends a number of fellow prisoners, most notably a wise long-term inmate named Red (Morgan Freeman). Although initially a box office flop, it has since become universally recognised as one of the finest American films in the last 30 years and a modern classic.
