Aro Recommended Shawshank Redemption, The


USA 1994, 136 minutes
Dir. Frank Darabont
Rating: [R]
Genres: Drama / Prison

Topics: Period 1940s, Period 1950s.


Aroview: Compelling yarn made of an early non-horror Stephen King short story about an innocent prison inmate who spends two decades behind bars.

Despite being strong on sentiment, and a resolution that perhaps overshoots the mark, there is plenty here to be admired and discovered, and it has since endured as an audience favourite.
