Movie Reviews: “The Shawshank Redemption


Movie Review: Hollywood Reporter

The Shawshank Redemption

Castle Rock has tapped into the wellspring of yet another Stephen King novella, from the same collection as Stand by Me. While it seems unlikely that this well-wrought film about hope and friendship in a maximum security prison will do Stand by Me-level business, The Shawshank Redemption should appeal to a mature audience. The marketing challenge will be to lure a mainstream audience to this dark drama starring Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman with, to boot, an enigmatic title.

Movie Review: TIME

The Shawshank Redemption

Revenge is a dish best served cold. And as coolers go, it’s hard to think of anyplace more chilling than Shawshank, the fictional state reformatory to which Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins) is sentenced to serve two consecutive life terms for murdering his wife and her lover.

Its architectural style is Victorian Gothic, its penology just plain gothic. Or maybe Visigothic. It is a place designed not to reform but to drive you crazy. Cool is what you need to survive here, and supercool is what you need to maintain a semblance of humanity.

Movie Review: Urban Cinefile

The Shawshank Redemption

I love this film. It’s one of those films that deserves pride of place in any DVD library and warrants repeated viewing. Frank Darabond’s superb script (based on a Stephen King short story) is economical and involving and this, his directing debut, delivers a classic drama about two convicted criminals who forge an unforgettable friendship. It’s a story about hope and dreams and one whose emotional impact is as great as the Pacific Ocean is blue.

Memorable Quotes From The Shawshank Redemption

The 1994 drama was based on the 1982 Stephen King’s Novella, “Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption: A Story from Different Seasons“. In honor of the film, here are some memorable quotes from the book:

Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption a Story from Different Seasons

“Some birds are not meant to be caged, that’s all. Their feathers are too bright, their songs too sweet and wild. So you let them go, or when you open the cage to feed them they somehow fly out past you. And the part of you that knows it was wrong to imprison them in the first place rejoices, but still, the place where you live is that much more drab and empty for their departure.”


“It always comes down to just two choices. Get busy living, or get busy dying.”


“I don’t have to listen to rumors about a man when I can judge him for myself.”


“They say The Pacific has no memory. That’s where I want to live the rest of my life. A warm place with no memory.”


“Writing about yourself seems to be a lot like sticking a branch into clear river-water and rolling up the muddy bottom.”


“At first you can’t stand those four walls, then you get so you can abide them, then you get so you accept them… and then, as your body and your mind ad your spirit adjust to life on an HO scale, you get to love them.”
