The Shawshank Redemption

The Shawshank Redemption ★★★★

88

Get busy living or get busy dying.

The chemistry between the actors really makes this one of the strongest casts ever assembled. The storyline and character development were exquisitely written and well thought out.

It's very rare that I find myself emotionally anchored to fictional people. Frank Darabont's immersive direction married up with standout performances from Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins enabled me to channel Andy and Ellis' feelings towards confinement, freedom and friendship.

Morgan Freeman really should start narrating documentaries.
