#tbt The Shawshank Redemption review

Timeless. The Shawshank Redemption is a great, if not the best, prison break movie ever. It's based on a short story by Stephen King and stars Tim Robbins as Andy Dufresne and Morgan Freeman as Red. It's about a banker (Robbins) who is wrongly accused of killing his wife and her lover and sentenced to a life in the Shawshank Prison in Maine. He befriends a man named Red (Freeman) and they have many adventures in the prison like, building a new library and fighting off prison bullies, or "The Sisters". After a long time Andy does the impossible and breaks out in a feat of courage and bravery. If you haven't seen this film already, you should. It's a classic and unforgettable. Shawshank is a fairly long movie but it doesn't feel long at all. It whizzes right by, and before you know it it's over. I'd recommend this movie to anyone. A good screenplay by Frank Darabont also helped make this movie memorable. Happy Viewing and Happy Throwback Thursday. Don't forget to Follow me on Twitter @WhitsMovies and like me on Facebook at!
