The Shawshank Redemption was a very powerful movie like Eric said. When I watched it, I didn’t know what to expect but it surprised me! It is a tough movie to watch and as the story goes, Andy is in a rock hard penitentiary for murder. He has to fight for every bit of humanity and peace of mind just to survive, but along the way he makes friends and eventually that is what the movie is about. A friendship that lasts and endures all the trials and tribulations life can throw at them. Even though it’s a movie full of horrible things that happen in life – it’s also a story of determination, hope, and a life made stronger because of the journey.
