Here Mr Freeman is pretending he doesn’t give a s***, but really he’ll be celebrating with a glass of bubbly.

The Shawshank Redemption is an American drama film that was written and directed by Frank Darabont in 1994.

It tells the story of a banker which was played by Tim Robbins, who is life sentenced to life in Shawshank Penitentiary for the murder of his wife, in which he claims he’s innocent.

He then becomes friends with a fellow prisoner over the period of 20 years, which is the contraband smuggler played by Morgan Freeman and becomes involved in a money laundering operation led by the prison warden which is played by actor Bob Gunton.
