Full Answer

The movie "The Shawshank Redemption" is a 1994 movie based on the Stephen King novella ,"Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption." This story can be found in "Different Seasons," a 1984 collection of his short stories.

The movie, classified as a crime drama, stars Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman. Robbins plays Andy, a banker who is sentenced to life in prison for the murder of his wife and her lover. While in prison, he befriends Ellis "Red" Redding played by Freeman.

The warden, played by Bob Gunton, hides his safe behind the plaque with the words "His judgment cometh and that right soon." He is a very religious man, and believes himself to be an instrument of God when it comes to punishment for the inmates. The warden is, however, very hypocritical when it comes to following the word of God. For example, he embezzles money and exacts severe beatings when inmates do not follow his rules.
