About

Screenwriter Frank Darabont made his feature directing debut with an Oscar-nominated adaptation of Stephen King’s novella "Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption," and over the last twenty years, this gripping story of hope and courage has become one of the most beloved films of its time.

Tim Robbins stars as Andy Dufresne, a young banker falsely convicted of the murder of his wife and her lover, who faces unthinkable brutality as an inmate of Shawshank State Prison. Andy’s accounting skills and his friendship with a more experienced prisoner, Ellis Boyd 'Red' Redding (Morgan Freeman), help keep him alive in the hostile setting. However, an unforgivable betrayal leads him to plot an impossible escape.
