@FaR2sToNeD Agreed. Great movies. annual pilgrimage to never disappoints. I'd post a quote from the script, but every line in that movie would qualify as a spoiler.
A little trivia.....Tom Hanks, Kevin Costner, Tom Cruise, Nicolas Cage, Johnny Depp and Charlie Sheen were all considered for the part of Andy Dufresne. Hanks turned it down because he was committed to Forrest Gump (1994). Costner liked the script a lot but was then embroiled in the filming of Waterworld (1995).
the best movie i have ever see
If you like this check out Mcvicar as well, that's an other great prison flick.
This is definitely a film i could watch over and over, a classic love it!
this is by far my favorite movie of all time :-)
i NEVER tire of this film!! 10/10 for EVERYTHING....acting, directing, script, soundtrack...EVERYTHING that goes into a film!
Awwww, I just love happy endings. :-) Beautifully done!

love that movie

Movies like this make me realise how epic the 90's were... I thought they were so cheesy when I was growing up but looking back at some of the films created then puts this era to shame (Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Casino, GoodFellas, Schindler's List, Braveheart, The Usual Suspects etc etc).

Fantastic film, one of those you never really forget.
