Shawshank Redemption. A practically perfect movie. Not a shot is wasted by Frank Darabont and the performances by Tim Robbins & Morgan are of quiet assurance, not exaggerated screen grabbers. Underrated by theatre goers appreciated subsequently, one of the greatest movies of all time.
The Help ~ "An aspiring author during the civil rights movement of the 1960s decides to write a book detailing the African-American maids' point of view on the white families for which they work, and the hardships they go through on a daily basis."
