The Shawshank Redemption (1994) | Directed by Frank Darabont

Grade: A

Thoughts: I honestly have no idea why it took me so long to see this film. I mean, isn’t it like number one on IMDb? While I’m not entirely sure I agree with that, I do agree that it is one of the best films I’ve ever seen. Dripping with emotion, tension, suspense, and beautifully acted by everyone, this Stephen King adaptation is gut wrenching. Melancholy and yet optimistic. One absolutely superb film.
