Fear can hold you prisoner. Hope can set you free.

One of my favorite movies of all time. Brilliantly cast with Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman.

Based on the short story by Steven King, Frank Darabont tells a moving story set in the 1940s about a young banker wrongfully convicted and imprisoned for the murder of his wife. Lonely and very isolated at first, he soon realises there is something deep inside within that no one can ever take away from you.

Loved it from beginning to end, with all the subtleties and ingenuities and the pureness of friendship in all the unlikely places. Shawshank Redemption is a masterpiece that has and will continue to transcend time.
