The more you fear the more captive you are, the more you hope the freer you are.
One of my faves. Good story and filmed near me. Based on a true story too.
The greatest movie of all time. Perfect script. Incredible acting. The greatest example of the human will and hope in dire times.
Better hope you don’t come across this channel surfing, because Morgan Freeman is telling a story & your next 2 hours just got rescheduled.
Full of classic cinematic moments, a true masterpiece about human despair and the triumph of hope.Beautifully acted and crafted, movie magic
A classic and great movie, everyone should see at least once
Really good movie. Took me years to watch this and wondered why I waited so long.
I have felt true freedom from captivity- the most euphoric and joyful feeling in the world. This film captured it perfectly. Perfect film.
Great aesthetics, acting, hair and makeup. The movie knows how to get the reactions it wants from the audience. A must watch.
It's one of the classics that you just have to see.
So many interesting characters and amazing script. Just a unforgettable movie.
Outstanding story. This film provides a definitive representation of what it means to have a “good heart”. Shawshank is a near perfect film
One of the best movies of all time. An amazing movie that everyone should see at least once, if not 20 times!
This movie more then earns its #1 place IMDB placement. This films’s twists and runs will leave your head spinning.
A near perfect translation of book to film. Excellent central performances and brilliant direction still deliver on multiple revisits.
It is one of the most well-written movies ever made. The casting, cinematography, score, script - all of it is just perfect.
Classic movie but rewatch-ability is low for me.
I lost count of how many times I’ve watched this movie
A beautifully crafted movie with phenomenal performances and a compelling and heartfelt story. Truly moving and a true masterpiece in cinema
The plot is slow and subtle but you end up empathising deeply with the characters. Heartwarming but not so catchy.
A great film made without having to use a woman as the premise - a great story in a male prison and the value of friendship .
