I recently heard someone state that this is a hugely overrated film, but I disagree. It’s a great story that does not go where you expect it to go. If you haven’t watched it, do. It’s on television all of the time, but get it on DVD or stream it, or whatever so you don’t have to deal with annoying advertising, and enjoy it.

The Shawshank Redemption was nominated for Oscars for Best Picture, Best Actor in a Leading Role (Morgan Freeman), Best Writing, Screenplay Based on Material Previously Produced or Published (Frank Darabont), Best Cinematography, Best Sound, Best Film Editing and Best Music, Original Score
