When The Shawshank Redemption was released in 1994, some critics complained that this popular prison drama was too long to sustain its plot. Those complaints miss the point, because the passage of time is crucial to this story about patience, the squeaky wheels of justice and the growth of a life-long friendship. Only when the film reaches its final, emotionally satisfying scene do you fully understand why writer-director Frank Darabont (adapting a novella by Stephen King) allows the story to unfold at its necessary pace.

Tim Robbins plays a banker named Andy who is sent to Shawshank Prison on a murder charge, but as he gets to know a life-term prisoner named Red (Morgan Freeman), we soon realise his claims of innocence are credible. We also realise that Andy's calm, quiet exterior hides a great reserve of patience and fortitude, and Red comes to admire this mild-mannered man who first struck him as weak and unfit for prison life. So it is that The Shawshank Redemption builds considerable impact as a prison drama that defies the conventions of the genre (violence, brutality, riots) to illustrate its theme of faith, friendship and survival. Nominated for seven Academy Awards including Best Picture, Actor and Screenplay, it's a remarkable film (which movie lovers count among their all-time favourites) that signalled the arrival of a promising new filmmaker.

On the DVD: The Shawshank Redemption limited-edition release contains the complete 48-minute documentary "Shawshank: The Redeeming Feature", including interviews with all the principal cast and crew; plus more interview material and the theatrical trailer. --Jeff Shannon

I prefer Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman in Home Alone. Much better movie... and some good slapstick too

Totally agree, what an outstanding film but a box office failure before vhs/dvd made it so successful!
#7
It's the number 1 film on IMB, so you can't be the only people that think that!

:thumbsup:

I hate this movie with a passion, such a stupid plot, like you really could dig a tunnel with a little hammer (of all things!) and like he'd have kept his teeth in the rest room. Bite? With what? He should have had his teeth dashed out.

Not even worth three quid.

Best film ever. Have it on DVD already, occasionally it comes on TV, if we're channel-hopping and chance upon it we just end up watching it even if it's already been on for an hour and a half. Some people prefer the Green Mile, but this tops it for me.

This film centres around the relationship of two inmates and deals with many issues. Perhaps you would understand it if a Kango hammer was used to assist the escape. Worth every penny and more!

The book btw is called Different Seasons - its a collection of four novellas by Stephen King that include 'Rita Hayworth and The Shawhank Redemption' and 'The Body' which was made into the film Stand By Me. :thumbsup:

i watched this the other day for the first time, after my dad saying it is a great film, he was right what a fantastic film. it is £3 in asda , got it for myself after watching it.
#15
Best film ever - hard choice - Life of Brian still holds the crown for me, just.
The Ealing comedy Titfield Thunderbolt a close third
#16
Top film.
#17
Great film but on my last look in the DVD drawer we had three copies of this movie!!
Surely everyone must have one copy of this by now, thus the price?!!

Stand By Me - now there's another good film (£3.93 at Asda and similar elsewhere):thumbsup:

It was freebie in the Sunday Times a while ago. There'll be copies galore in charity shops. Still haven't got around to watching it either:p
#20
worth buying just for extras ?
[helper]#21
Ok I'm getting tired of this certain deal now lol
#22
Absolute brilliant film, worth every penny :-D
#23
Excellent film, everyone should have a copy and at this price, don't hesitate. Voted Hot
#24
How can this possibly be hot? It has been given away free with newspapers for nout! Even if it hadn't been given away free before the going rate for an old DVD is £2-3 surely.

Good film but hot price? I think not!
[helper]#25
It's free now because everyone in the country probably has a copy somewhere in their house :)
