Pick your movie of the week: 25 Years of Shawshank (Sept 15-21/19)

This Tuesday, September 10, will mark exactly 25 years since The Shawshank Redemption (1994) was released in theaters. I remember when I first started paying attention to the IMDb top 250 list in 2009. This movie was then rated #1 and had been for the past year. And since then it hasn’t budged from that position. That’s 11 years in the #1 spot!

So I thought it’d be cool to honour this modern classic by taking its director and two main characters and acquiring our nominees from other projects that they have done. And here they are; take your pick:

The Green Mile (1999)
Frank Darabont, Director

Mystic River (2003)
Tim Robbins as Dave Boyle

Invictus (2009)
Morgan Freeman as Nelson Mandela
