This film is a masterpiece . Not much more to say about it. Who can forget Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins performances in this. Some superb music tracks and just a brilliantly done film. Other people were offered the role of “red” according to IMDB but you just can’t imagine anyone else than Morgan Freeman playing this role perfectly. I wonder how many prisoners in jail right now, have actually seen this and cried? Or more importantly how many have a pet bird ?

Memorable film quote

“I have no idea to this day what those two Italian ladies were singing about. Truth is, I don’t want to know. Some things are best left unsaid. I’d like to think they were singing about something so beautiful, it can’t be expressed in words, and makes your heart ache because of it. I tell you, those voices soared higher and farther than anybody in a gray place dares to dream. It was like some beautiful bird flapped into our drab little cage and made those walls dissolve away, and for the briefest of moments, every last man in Shawshank felt free.”

ManCry star rating ********* 9/10

And heres that song by the way….

(if you are listening to this at work and someone says im warning you turn this off… just put your feet up and smile )
