#30DayBlogChallenge - Day 19 - Your Favorite Movie

Day 19: Your Favorite Movie

I swear I was just talking about this movie recently, and my love of it! It may have been because of the recent, and sad, story. The inmate that inspired the tale, Frank Freshwaters, is being sent BACK to prison after all these decades, "on the lam"! The man is almost 80 years old, in bad health and just living out his days in Melbourne Florida! SMH! Anyway!

So back to the subject at hand, My Favorite Movie!

Well, my favorite (as you can tell by the title image) is the critically acclaimed, 1994 film, starring Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins, and directed by Frank Darabont:


The Shawshank Redemption is a gritty, emotional and jarring tale of law, punishment and friendship! It inspires with it's hard look at life behind bars, but shows that perseverance, purpose and hope, are what's most important in life! The film originally flopped, but after rave reviews and 7 Oscar nominations, it was a Home Video HIT, cult classic and one the greatest films, ever made!
