R | | Crime, Drama
Two imprisoned men bond over a number of years, finding solace and eventual redemption through acts of common decency.
When Andy is making his escape, he crawls through a drainage tunnel filled with raw sewage. The sludge was actually a mixture of chocolate syrup, sawdust, and water, and two decades later, the pipes still smell like cocoa.
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.
On the newspaper front page announcing the "corruption" story, the word "indictment" is misspelled as "indictement".
The man who cried and was beaten when Andy first arrived is listed and credited as "Fat Ass" -- the other inmates' nickname for him.
