Hope Shawshank redemption

Frank Darabont and Morgan Freeman

Frank Darabont - Director of The Shawshank Redemption

Ann Morgan - Author of the novel Beside Myself

Hope is depicted as a light in the dark

Andy is the dominant characterisation of hope and inspires hope within the inmates of Shawshank prison.

Andy Defresne - A happy chappy

Brief moments can encourage hope

Inmates listening to some sick tunes
[as if a] Beautiful bird flapped into our drab little cage and made those walls dissolve away. And for the briefest moments, every last man in Shawshank felt free

Freedom & Normality

Lighting is very important in this scene!!!

Beside Myself

Hope is depicted as a motivational feeling, a light in the dark.

The main character Ellie is the characterisation of hope. Just like Andy!!!

What in rock formation?


Pssstttt...It's also a major theme in Shawshank it just wasn't mentioned

Ellie's struggle to be normal represents hope as innate within the human condition.

Almost finished

The representation of hope within The Shawshank Redemption and Beside Myself depicts hope as an innate trait within the human condition.

Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and good things never die.

Thanks for sticking around!
