The Shawshank Redemption [DVD]
amazon.co.uk
When The Shawshank Redemption was released in 1994, some critics complained that this popular prison drama was too long (142 minutes) to sustain its plot. Those complaints miss the point, because the passage of time is crucial to this story about patience, the squeaky wheels of justice and the growth of a life-long friendship. Only when the film reaches its final, emotionally satisfying scene do you fully understand why writer-director Frank Darabont (adapting a novella by Stephen King) allows the story to unfold at its necessary pace. Tim Robbins plays a banker named Andy who is sent to Shawshank Prison on a murder charge, but as he gets to know a life-term prisoner named Red (Morgan Freeman), we soon realise his claims of innocence are credible. We also realise that Andy's calm, quiet exterior hides a great reserve of patience and fortitude, and Red comes to admire this mild-mannered man who first struck him as weak and unfit for prison life. So it is that The Shawshank Redemption builds considerable impact as a prison drama that defies the conventions of the genre (violence, brutality, riots) to illustrate its theme of faith, friendship and survival. Nominated for seven Academy Awards including Best Picture, Actor and Screenplay, it's a remarkable film (which many movie lovers count among their all-time favourites) that signalled the arrival of a promising new filmmaker. --Jeff Shannon  read more

The Shawshank Redemption [DVD] [1995]
amazon.co.uk
Director Nick Love knows how to pick up a poisoned chalice. In choosing to tackle a modern day take on Alan Clarkes 1989 The Firm, he risks the wrath of upsetting those who regard the original so highly, while also being accused of jumping aboard the remake bandwagon. As it turns out, though, he gets away with it all. Loves version of The Firm wisely uses the early film as inspiration rather than a firm template. Thus, while the setting remains underground football violence, Love switches the attention to a different character, the youngster breaking into the crowd. This allows the narrative to focus on his becoming accepted by the group, and then his struggle to break free, which settles into a solid three-act story. Its very much aimed at an adult audience, but that doesnt mean that The Firm is a cheap piece of cinema. Far from it, as it happens. Loves film mixed in sharp violence with sparks of humour, and does so to very good effect. In the process, it sidesteps comparisons to the original by simply going off in a different direction, and works well because of it. Its a little more tempered than some of Nick Loves earlier work too, but perhaps as a consequence, its also his best film to date.  read more

Uncommon Justice: Shawshank Redemption (Reviews Book 1)
amazon.co.uk
IntroductionThe topic of choice is the film Shawshank Redemption. Stephen King wrote the original book under the title, Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption. Shawshank is a fictional state prison. Stephen King refers to Shawshank often. The Fifth Quarter, the Sun Dog, and Dolores Claiborne are three works Stephen King refers to Shawshank. Frank Daramont adapted the book to a screenplay, which became Shawshank Redemption. Daramont adapted two novels by Stephen King to film, the other being Green Mile. Im greatly indebted to the makers of Dramatica for learning the theory of Story. SituationWhat are all the people in Shawshank Redemption dealing with? The main focus of the story is how seemingly innocent people who have been unjustly condemned react and respond in a different way to the same oppressive system; that is, incarceration in prison life. A situation in which the entire group of people find themselves is a set of circumstances that seem to have no solution. (Phillips, 2013) A situation is any fixed state of affairs. The system can be a corporate of government. A movement or ideology. The central point in the system is that it is unchanging. In the case of Shawshank Redemption, we have a system that is both unchanging and established. It is unchanging because of the warden who is a corrupt person who is using the system for his private or personal gain. The system is established because it works within the larger penal system of the establish laws set by the government. We need to know the overall territory in which Shawshank Redemption plays itself out in order to understand the dynamics in which the characters change or remain unchanged. For example, Andy understands the system, but he is unwilling to be changed by it. He would rather go against the established system while Red and others within the system simply accept things just the way they are. Is it true that the system is always rigid and inflexible? The system in Shawshank Redemption is much like the world in which Christ became Incarnate. The Roman rulers, the Jewish Pharisees, Sadducees and Gentiles had all become used to the world. Christ came to challenge the modus operandi. Did Christ just sit back like so many others and say it cant be changed? No, because he only wanted the Fathers Will. My food and my drink is to do the will of him who sent me. The world has many systems and systems come in different forms and sizes. Now that we understand the major system that Andy and Red attempt to live their lives it is time to look at other elements of the overall story.  read more
