Two imprisoned men bond over a number of years, finding solace and eventual redemption through acts of common decency.
While he was writing the screenplay, Frank Darabont was getting into opera. When he felt "trapped" in the writing process, Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro would lift his spirits.
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.
Brooks states in his letter that he saw a car once when he was a kid. Brooks went to Shawshank in 1905 and the back story is he was convicted of murder for killing his wife and daughter after losing at poker one night. This would mean he was a young adult when he went away. In the couple of years before he went to prison, he might have seen a car, but as a kid, that would be highly unlikely, but not impossible, as there were several types of automobiles dating back as far as 1890 (the ones before that don't really count as car's), so if he was in his mid 20's when he went to prison he might have seen one of those vehicles when he was 10-15 years of age.
The man who cried and was beaten when Andy first arrived is listed and credited as "Fat Ass" -- the other inmates' nickname for him.
