Hi. if you want to watch best movies with epic stories, we can go back to the movies in the 90s. Although, it is still with simple quality effect. One of which is “The Shawshank Redemption”.
The Shawshank Redemption is a movie about time, patience and loyalty — not sexy qualities, perhaps, but they grow on you during the subterranean progress of this story, which is about how two men serving life sentences in prison become friends and find a way to fight off despair. It is an Oscar-nominated 1994 movie based on a Stephen King story about a man sent to a maximum security prison in Maine in the 1950s who shows the other inmates perseverance and provides a sense of hope and optimism in the bleakest of places and under the most difficult of circumstances.
However, The Shawshank Redemption has a lot of life and humor in it, and warmth in the friendship that builds up between Andy and Red. Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins) is convicted for the murder of his wife and her lover and sent to prison. Andy befriends “Red” Redding (Morgan Freeman) and uses his past as a banker to get a job in the prison library.
There is even excitement and suspense, although not when we expect it. But mostly the film is an allegory about holding onto a sense of personal worth, despite everything. If the film is perhaps a little slow in its middle passages, maybe that is part of the idea, too, to give us a sense of the leaden passage of time, before the glory of the final redemption.
