Andy Dufresne from The Shawshank Redemption
Nominated for seven Academy Awards, including "Best Picture," The Shawshank Redemption is a 1994 American drama film written and directed by Frank Darabont. Starring Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman, this now beloved classic, features some clever accounting by the wrongfully convicted Andy Dufresne (Robbins). Adapted from the Stephen King novella 'Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption', the film tells the story of Andy Dufresne, a banker who is sentenced to life in Shawshank State Penitentiary for the murder of his wife and her lover, despite his claims of innocence. During his time at the prison, he befriends a fellow inmate, Ellis Boyd "Red" Redding (Freeman), and finds himself protected by the guards after the warden begins using him in his money-laundering operation.
