The Shawshank Redemption
1994
 
Framed in the 1940s for the double murder of his wife and her lover, upstanding banker Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins) begins a new life at the Shawshank prison, where he puts his accounting skills to work for an amoral warden (Bob Gunton). During his long stretch in prison, Dufresne comes to be admired by the other inmates -- including an older prisoner named Red (Morgan Freeman) -- for his integrity and unquenchable sense of hope.

Very satisfying movie, lots of detail and warm lighting. Plus, one of the villianest villians I've ever seen in a movie; no over-the-top, but no empathy either.
 
Well done throughout. No action sequences, but a good story movie for sure.
