Two imprisoned men bond over a number of years, finding solace and eventual redemption through acts of common decency.
Stephen King has said that his original novella was a culmination of all the memories he had from watching prison movies when he was a child.
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.
When Andy is undressing in his cell, it is revealed that the suit and tie he took from Norton are solid black. When he walks into the Maine National Bank the next morning, he is wearing a striped suit and a striped red/black tie. But this is not necessarily the first bank he entered - he could have picked up several thousand dollars from one, bought a new suit that fit him, and then gone to the bank we see.
The man who cried and was beaten when Andy first arrived is listed and credited as "Fat Ass" -- the other inmates' nickname for him.
