The Shawshank Redemption

The Shawshank Redemption ★★★★½

“Get busy living or get busy dying.”

Though hope is frail, it's hard to kill. It may be beaten and on the brink of death but it drags itself by the limbs and quivers with each motion of the body. It's a friend you hit up at 2AM when your mind's spinning and thoughts are whirling in and out; they pick up. A stranger holding the door open as you quicken your pace to reach it, a streak of sunlight piercing through sheer curtains after a senseless storm. Hope is all that remains when life gets you down and you figure the darkness is closing in fast. Hope is what keeps us grounded.
