The Shawshank Redemption. This movie is often credited as one of the best movies of all time, and rightfully so. The movie really doesn’t have much going on in the grand scheme of things, and, like all great movies, is at it’s very heart most concerned with it’s characters. The people in this prison seem to have so little control over their lives; they’re told where to go, what to do, how to act and what to say. However, the characters still grow and interact as people. As simple as this story seems to be, it’s truly about the importance, meaning, and affect behind human relationships. Despite having everything but their basic needs being stripped away from them, the prisoners find humanity in each other.
