The Shawshank Redemption (1994)

In 1946 Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins), a young and successful banker, has his life radically changed by being convicted of a crime he never committed, the murder of his wife and her lover. He is sent to a prison that is the nightmare of any detainee, the Shawshank State Penitentiary in Maine. There he will serve the life sentence. Andy will soon be introduced to Warden Norton (Bob Gunton), the corrupt and harsh prison guard who uses the Bible as a weapon of control and Captain Byron Hadley (Clancy Brown) who treats inmates as animals. Andy is friends with Ellis Boyd Redding (Morgan Freeman), a 20-year-old prisoner who controls the institution's black market.
