The Shawshank Redemption Movie

Andy Dufresne, a hotshot banker, has murdered his wife and her secret lover and is sent to Shawshank Prison for the lifetime. He is very isolated and lonely at first, but over the years, he retains hope and eventually gains the respect of his fellow inmates, especially longtime convict "Red" Redding, a black marketeer, and becomes influential within the prison. Set in the 1940's, the film shows how Andy, with the help of his friend Red, the prison entrepreneur, turns out to be a most unconventional prisoner.
