I feel that his movie is highly underrated and thought of as just another "new guy in prison" type of movie but, the messages of friendship portrayed makes this movie one in a million. The movie chronicles Andy Dufrasne, a man wrongly convicted of the murder of his wife and her lover. He meets "Red" a man who can get "anything for anybody" which is a common role in prison movies he even says, "there must be one like me in every prison". These friends which shows unlikeness help save each other in the end, Andy saves Red's soul, which was calloused from prison life and Red saved Andy, teaching him all he needed to know about prison life.
Although there is some lude remarks and alcohol consumption in this movie, the good definitely outweighs the bad in this case. (SPOILER ALERT) If you have ever seen a prison movie ending then you know the ending to The Shawshank Redemption. Both Andy and Red gain redemption in a dismal, dark prison by doing good deeds for one another. As you know, Red will escape Shawshank, Andy will escape Shawshank, but your soul will never escape The Shawshank Redemption.
Overall this film is disturbing, sad, great, happy and violent all at the same time and is a great film with great actors and a great story line.
