R | | Crime, Drama
Two imprisoned men bond over a number of years, finding solace and eventual redemption through acts of common decency.
The original story, "Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption", appears in Stephen King's book, "Different Seasons", along with three other novellas. Only one of them, "The Breathing Method", has not been turned into a movie.
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.
Assuming that prisoner numbers are issued in order of arrival at the prison, the character Snooze should not have a higher number (38271), than Andy (37927).
The man who cried and was beaten when Andy first arrived is listed and credited as "Fat Ass" -- the other inmates' nickname for him.
