The Shawshank Redemption

The Shawshank Redemption(1994)

This movie actually has some flaws. They should have left it open as to whether or not he murdered his wife (in other words, let the viewer decide). Also, they could have left out the character of Tommy Williams. But even with these flaws, the incredible power of hope (which may, indeed, be the best of things) propels this movie to 4.5 stars.
