My opinion

The Shawshank Redemption really touched me- it is such a nice movie! Indeed, a great film! Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman gave so much excellent performances...... the story was so much nice. Really, it is one of the best films that I have seen. It was really very, very much touching. I really loved it... 

5 out of 5.
