The Shawshank Redemption

"The Shawshank Redemption" is directed by Frank Darabont and was released the 14 October 1994 in the USA. It has Tim Robbins as Andy Dufresne and Morgan Freeman as Ellis Boyd Redding (also called Red) in the leading roles. Morgan Freeman is known for his slow, deep and peaceful voice, and have been the narrator in many other series and movies, and that is why he of cause also are the narrator in this movie. The character Red tells what there happens in the movie in the time it's happens, so you not only get to see what there happens, but also hear it and what Red is thinking about it. The director and screen writer have been good to show the different persons from all their sides, so you really get the feeling of that you know the persons, and know what there will happened, but yet he still surplices you the one time after another. And specially giving Morgan Freeman space to show his full potential, that he also do. Witch also are the reasons that it have been nominated for 7 Academy Awards, including Morgan Freeman for best actor in a leading role, and best writing and screenplay by Frank Darabont. This movie have giving many meracebles quotes, but there are three there stand a little out: (Andy Dufresne: [in letter to Red]) "Remember Red, hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies." (Andy Dufresne:) "Get busy living, or get busy dying." (Red:) "Same old shit, different day" These quotes are someone that almost any person there have seen the movie can remember, and are still used today.
I will give the movie nine stars out of ten. I think that the movie really gets around many issues, is both show us the human urged to freedom, and how the prison life was in the mid 1900. Then have Frank Darabont really closed his actors carefully, and that is something you really can see, I personally can't see anybody...
