20th Anniversary Screening of The Shawshank Redemption

the-shawshank-redemption_806x1075_v2

Screenwriter Frank Darabont made his feature directing debut with an Oscar-nominated adaptation of Stephen King’s novella Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption, and over the last twenty years, this gripping story of hope and courage has become one of the most beloved films of its time.

Tim Robbins stars as Andy Dufresne, a young banker falsely convicted of the murder of his wife and her lover, who faces unthinkable brutality as an inmate of Shawshank State Prison. Andy’s accounting skills and his friendship with a more experienced prisoner, Ellis Boyd ‘Red’ Redding played by Morgan Freeman help keep him alive in the hostile setting. However, an unforgivable betrayal leads him to plot an impossible escape.

For his directing debut, Darabont assembled a top-notch supporting cast with a memorable performance by the great James Whitmore as a longtime convict. Darabont was also aided by Roger Deakins’ stark cinematography, Richard Francis-Bruce’s tense editing and Thomas Newman’s emotional score, which all earned Oscar nominations.

Stars Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman and writer-director Frank Darabont will appear in person at the screening at the Samuel Goldwyn Theatre in Beverly Hills on November 18, 2014 to help celebrate this contemporary classic’s 20th anniversary. More information HERE.
