R | | Crime, Drama
Two imprisoned men bond over a number of years, finding solace and eventual redemption through acts of common decency.
Voted #4 on Empire magazine's 500 Greatest Movies Of All Time (September 2008).
Mr. Dufresne, describe the confrontation you had with your wife the night that she was murdered.
Andy Dufresne: It was very bitter. She said she was glad I knew, that she hated all the sneaking around. And she said that she wanted a divorce in Reno.
At the very beginning of the film Andy (while sitting in his car) goes to grab his bottle and the gun in his lap vanishes and reappears between shots.
The man who cried and was beaten when Andy first arrived is listed and credited as "Fat Ass" -- the other inmates' nickname for him.
