Shawshank Redeemed in 100 Words

Darabont’s celebrated adaption of King’s beloved story is rightfully hailed as one of the greatest films of all time.

The heartfelt tale of an unlikely friendship forged in an unforgiving jail has both impeccable writing and profound performances.

Like Cuckoo’s Nest, it highlights the power of friendship and the resilience of the oppressed individual. Robbin’s resourcefulness and Freeman’s kindness remind audiences of the humanity in us all.

Shawshank makes profound arguments about the catastrophic consequences of ‘institutionalisation’, and the harsh reality of prison life.

With an ending both beautifully optimistic and satisfying, Shawshank will forever live close to our hearts.
