Shawshank Redemption

by Megan

A movie that has significantly changed my thinking, possibly even the course of my whole life, was Shawshank Redemption. This movie centers on a man who, though he has done no wrong, is convicted of murder and sentenced to serve two life sentences in Shawshank Prison. After watching this movie for the first time, I began to think of the way I view other people and how my views may be skewed by misguided facts or perceptions of them. Though my observation were not quite the same as were in Shawshank Redemption, the premise still holds true.


We are often told “Don’t judge a book by its cover” but then simultaneously have certain stereotypes of people drilled in to our head over and over again by the media, friends, family, or our culture. What if we stopped judging one another and actually stopped to understand the true person they are. A person might be gay or a strong Christian or a democrat or republican or fat or skinny or whatever the case may be, but that doesn’t mean you know who they are.

As people, we are defined by so much more than the stereotype that society categorizes us in. The movie, Shawshank Redeption helped open my eyes to try to see beyond the superficial. Though cliché, it is so important to not “judge a book by its cover” and to instead read all the pages inside.
