Constantly topping audience polls of the best films ever made (and years ago voted Leicester’s favourite film) Shawshank was a box office flop on its release but is now rightly regarded as a classic.

Sent to prison for the murder of his wife and her lover, ‘tall drink of water’ Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins) befriends Red (Morgan Freeman), the prison’s contraband smuggler.
