Although with Shawshank it’s like it has its own iconic brand as Andy is a solemn character. However, Tim Robbins plays it intensely. We can see the character development of Andy as he ages from being a newbie to father figure during the story, with Red who brings introverted Andy out of his shell. The last act, where Andy helps Red accept his freedom, is very moving - all the more so because Andy is operating at a distance with postcards and letters which is seen through Red's mind.
As an audience we feel quite excited in a way to see what happens to Andy. I surely asked questions such as “Did Andy really kill those two people?”, “Why is Andy always keeping to himself?”. The audience can’t help but wonder and that’s what makes a film so enjoyable to watch it makes us lift off our chairs as we become eager to see how the story unfolds. “Will Andy ever make it out?”.
The film moves in such a neat and precise way. Wonderfully wise performances by the actors of the film especially by Freeman and Robbins. They connect with their characters Andy and Red so well to create something powerfully moving. They show the deep messages of the power of friendship and how hope springs eternal. “The Shawshank Redemption” is a film you surely don’t want too
