THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION: In this Stephen King adaptation from the same story collection as "Stand By Me," Morgan Freeman plays Red, a lifer who knows how to cope with the bleak hopelessness of Shawshank State Prison. Tim Robbins plays new inmate Andy, a quiet banker convicted of murders he didn't commit - and whose indomitable will earns Red's respect and friendship. Andy's resourcefulness brings hope and change to the entire prison. He's full of surprises, and the best one comes last, leading to one of the most satisfying finales in film history.
