The Shawshank Redemption

The Shawshank Redemption ★★★★½

I wholly underestimated this film. It always puzzled me whenever I saw it ranked so highly on the IMDB top 250, nevermind the Letterboxd top 250, but The Shawshank Redemption is a truly powerful and beautiful film. It is practically flawless with incredible performances bolstered by some of the most charming and likeable dialogue, in a story that resolves all its plotpoints so concisely, in a way that only the best films can manage.
