What a wonderful idea: to bring back the film version of Stephen King’s The Shawshank Redemption on its 10th anniversary.
The loyalty between friends is a the most esteemed value for young adults today – ask any college student, soldier or gang member.
Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins) and “Red” Redding (Morgan Freeman) develop a friendship based on integrity, respect and interior feeedom within the confines of a maximum security prison in the 1940’s. Andy is wrongly accused and Red is doing his time. How they both achieve interior liberty and physical freedom makes for one of the best-told cinema stories of all time.
If you haven’t yet seen this film, put it on your list. The themes are not for young children; this is for mature adolescents and adults.
