Background 


The story could date back from 1947. A banker was charged for killing his wife and sentenced to life imprisonment, which meant that he would spend the rest of his life in Shawshank Prison.


As a authority figure in the prison,  Red looked down upon the freshman, Andy, and bet with others that Andy would cry. Nevertheless, he failed. One day, Andy found Red and wanted a pickaxe without telling him the truth. After that, they became friends. Thanks to that Andy was a banker and proficient in financial system, he helped more prison guards deal with tax issues so that he missed a chance to leave the prison. 



 A stormy night of thunder and lightning, Andy escaped from prison successfully. It turned out that Andy had been digging holes with that pickaxe every day for twenty years, and then covering the hole with posters. He reported the truth of corruption and bribery of the prison governor. After 40 years in prison, Red was finally released on parole. He found an iron box under the oak tree he had agreed with Andy. It contained some cash and a handwritten letter from Andy. Two old friends finally met on the blue Pacific coast.





Some Reviews


Shawshank encompasses friendships, hardships, hopes, and dreams. And what is so great about the movie is that it gives you hope. Even though the circumstances between the characters and the viewers are quite different, you don't feel that far removed from what the characters are going through.





 What can we learn from this movie?


1. Life will not always be fair to you.

Life, at every step of the way, will present to you with difficult situations. At times, you’ll even feel that life’s been unfair to you. The trick is not lose hope and learn to deal with it. Crying won’t help. Trying will. 


2. Be persistent and always focus on your dreams.

Persistence and staying true to our dreams are never easy to do, but only by doing both can we even stand a chance to achieve what we want to do.

3. Your Strength is “You”.

In your darkest and most difficult moments, it is important that you stay true to yourselves; because in the end, even if everything is taken away from you, you still will have your “will” and “courage” that you can hang on to and fight back. Therefore, never forget “you” are your biggest strength.
