Our Favorite Film Adaptations

Remember, Red, hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing
ever dies.”

Shawshank Redemption by Stephen King
1994, Starring Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman
Directed by Frank Darabont

1994ʼs Shawshank Redemption, based on the Stephen King short Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption, is my easy choice for my favorite film adaptation. It is a great story that made an amazing movie. Andy Dufrane, jailed for life for a crime he did not commit. Life is harsh within the cold stone walls of Shawshank Prison. Yet, even in that cold, dank place hope becomes the irresistible force that shatters the immovable object. Read the story first. Then watch Frank Darabontʼs nearly perfect adaptation.
