In conclusion, Chris McCandless has overcome numerous obstacles in his voyage. These are a percentage of the things he will always remember.

The Shawshank Redemption is about Andy Dufresne’s (acted by Tim Robbins) life in fictional Shawshank State Penitentiary after he was wrongly sentenced to 2 consecutive life sentences in 1947. This movie was adapted from Stephen King’s Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption.

This might seem trivial and not sexy like other movies, but the characters seem to amaze me with every scene.
