''The Shawshank Redemption'' is a Frank Darabond's american film set in 1994. It is based on the short novel of Stephen King Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption. Tim Robbins, the main character, plays the part of Andy Dufresne, the vice-presiden of a bank, who was sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of his wife and her lover. Ellis boyd "Red" Redding a convict of the prison, who will be Andy's best friend, is played by Morgan Freeman and Bob Gunton plays the part of Norton, the prison's warder .

Andy Dufresne is a bank vice-president cult, attracted by the literature and classical music. The skills made ​​about the murder of his wife and her lover, showed enough evidence to sentence him to death. After a hard time in prison, Andy gains the respect of his fellow inmates, befriend Red, and becomes the right hand of the Warden.He never lost hope in prison, that will make the story has a great ending.

One of the things I most liked in this wonderful film, is the teaching of life that is transmitted to the viewers. It teaches that it is worth fighting to live, although it seems impossible, one must never lose hope, because that's all you have left that they can't take away. And it shows the real friendship between two men.

Despite how beautiful is this story, I do not find many other ways to criticize. Darabound's work, let me wonder, especially since I love these films certainly did a great job. Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman are excellent actors. The connection that they did in the movie was very very good. It was very touching to see them act together and especially in a flawless manner, as shown in this film about friendship and values.

In conclusion, I recommend this movie. I loved the plot of the movie, because I found it very moving and entertaining, and performances by Robbins and Freeman gave the only thing missing from this film. Worth seeing this movie, because although many people do not believe it has a great lesson of life.
