The Shawshank Redemption tells the story of Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins), a banker who is sentenced to life in Shawshank State Penitentiary for the murder of his wife and her lover, despite his claims of innocence. During his time at the prison, he befriends a fellow inmate, Ellis Boyd 'Red' Redding (Morgan Freeman), and finds himself protected by the guards after the warden begins using him in his money-laundering operation. The film received multiple award nominations (including seven Oscar nominations) and highly positive reviews from critics for its acting, story, and realism. It is considered to be one of the greatest films of the 90s. In March 2011, the film was voted by BBC Radio 1 listeners as their favourite film of all time. The Shawshank Redemption is the highest-rated movie on IMDB with an average star count of 9.3, closely followed by The Godfather. The Shawshank Redemption score was composed by multiple (Grammy) award winner Thomas Newman. The score was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Score in 1994, which was Newman's first Oscar nomination. A central scene in the film features the soprano 'Letter Duet' ('Canzonetta sull'aria') from Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro, which is included on the soundtrack. Original songs by Hank Williams and The Inkspots are included as well. Also available on 180 gm vinyl: OST - HE NAMED ME MALALA


A drama about the life of Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins) after he is sent to Shawshank prison for the murder of his wife and her lover. There he befriends fellow prisoner 'Red' (Morgan Freeman) who narrates the film with several voice-overs. An ordinary man in such a situation would be crushed by despair but Red relates that Andy was no ordinary prisoner. Although prison is a kind of hell, even in a completely unforgiving and corrupt system with an evil warden and dangerous fellow inmates, he doesn't lose his spirit. Andy makes the best of the situation and can even claim small victories while serving time. Most important (for a Hollywood film) Andy doesn't lose hope. Red initially sees Andy's efforts as futility and leading to inevitable disappointment, but over time Red develops great admiration for Andy. The Shawshank Redemption is almost the perfect Hollywood film and told well enough to touch even the most jaded viewer, with an ending that brings the ultimate cinematic catharsis.
