The Shawshank Redemption, which received seven Oscar® nominations, including Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Original Score and Best Screenplay, will be released on 4K UHD 13th September 2021 from Warner Home Video. Released in 1994, the film marked the feature directorial debut of its screenwriter, Frank Darabont.
The Shawshank Redemption, the emotionally moving portrayal of a friendship between men under the harshest of circumstances, stars Academy Award® winning actor Tim Robbins (Mystic River, Bull Durham) and Academy Award® nominee Morgan Freeman (Driving Miss Daisy, Unforgiven, Bruce Almighty).
Based on Stephen King's novella "Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption", the movie won Frank Darabont an Oscar® nomination for his adapted screenplay and critical acclaim for his directorial debut. Mr. Darabont is one of only six filmmakers in history with the unique distinction of having his first two feature films receive nominations for the Best Picture Academy Award: 1994's The Shawshank Redemption and 1999's The Green Mile.
This inspiring drama tells the story of Andy Dufresne (Robbins), a prominent banker unjustly convicted of murder and sentenced to life imprisonment at Maine's Shawshank Prison. He is befriended by longtime convict Red (Freeman) who's been in long enough to know the ropes and helps him cope with the frightening realities of prison life. As the two men grow closer, so does the sense of hope that can truly set them free.
