The Shawshank Redemption

The Shawshank Redemption ★★★★★

The message of the film starts in a mysterious, locked cage—but as the story progresses, it spreads its wings freely and flies through generations upon generations, telling of its virtue. Marvelously told in a simple manner and without much ambiguity, yet timelessly impactful. In the end, you'd feel a sense of triumph and a hopeful impression over the gloom that once framed the mind.

"I have to remind myself that some birds aren't meant to be caged. Their feathers are just too bright. And when they fly away, the part of you that knows it was a sin to lock them up does rejoice." — Red
