The Shawshank Redemption

Framed in the 1940s for the double murder of his wife and her lover, upstanding banker Andy Dufresne begins a new life at the Shawshank prison, where he puts his accounting skills to work for an amoral warden. During his long stretch in prison, Dufresne comes to be admired by the other inmates -- including an older prisoner named Red -- for his integrity and unquenchable sense of hope.

To me this film is story telling at its finest coupled with great performances from two excellent actors. Even my Mum who doesn't like films loves this one!

Amazing. Just amazing. This movie has one of the best endings ever. Plus you get to hear Morgan Freeman's awesomely soothing voice for almost 3 hours straight :D!!!
