This movie came out in 1994 and received huge applaud for its story, screenplay, and direction. The duo of Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman is such a compliment for the story. This movie is about the lives of two imprisoned beings who somehow find companions in each other from the rest of the lot of criminals and find their way out of decent living within the prison. 

The character played by Tim Robbins, Andrew, who is imprisoned for no fault of his own, finds his own unique way of dealing with this change in life and works for the betterment of inmates. His companion Red(Morgan Freeman) is at times surprised at Andrew’s take on life! Their decent years of working and handling responsibility for various prison jobs are depicted beautifully. But then comes the most captivating part which is the gift of patience! 

This movie makes you sit all along only to find out what a wonder “hope and patience” is!

One line for this movie- A classic whose ending will amaze you!!
