Film Night - The Shawshank Redemption

Film and short discussion  - all welcome

Andy Dufresne is sent to Shawshank Prison for the murder of his wife and her secret lover. He is very isolated and lonely at first, but realizes there is something deep inside your body that people can't touch or get to....'HOPE'. Andy becomes friends with prison 'fixer' Red, and Andy epitomizes why it is crucial to have dreams. His spirit and determination lead us into a world full of imagination, one filled with courage and desire. Will Andy ever realize his dreams?

Certificate: 15  Running time 142 minutes Contains frequent strong language, violence and sexual assault

This is not an easy watch but it raises important questions for Holy Week of guilt and innocence, hope and redemption. Do join us.
