The Shawshank Redemption 
There's a reason it's #1 on FilmCrave.
4/4 stars

The Shawshank Redemption is a movie with extreme depth.
I watched this movie with my father when I was twelve (and in the prime of my discovery of the art of film), way before it was number one on IMDB and such. It was just an incredible movie.
Tim Robbins as Andy Dufresne is remarkable. He doesn't say much, it's all in the facial expressions. You get the torture this man has endured, and that when he didn't even deserve it. If you can't sympathise with Andy in this movie, check your pulse.
The characters are written so well with such hopeful and clever dialogue, managing to move an audience simply by having a conversation in a prison yard about the beauties of the life outside.
Morgan Freeman is once again Morgan Freeman, although this was one of the first few roles that got him noticed as 'Morgan Freeman: Greatest Narrator of All Time'.
The way this film is structured, it feels like there is always room for more. That's why so many new character are introduced to help break your heart and care for them.

I look at this film and there's nothing I want to change. Everything is there. The characters, the story, the direction and the perfect inner message: that whatever is taken from you in life, you still have hope.
