Murder in the First and The Shawshank Redemption are two similar yet equally engrossing pieces of film-making; both films are set in the 1930s and 1940s in American prisons and both convey the similar message.

In fact, there are many similarities between the heroes of “The Shawshank Redemption” and The Gospel. The central characters are both wrongly accused. One receives two life sentences and the other is crucified. Neither are readily esteemed by their contemporaries.

But, it’s a film for mature audiences. It takes us to a setting that’s disturbing, uses language that’s raw, showcases supporting characters who are far from ideal role models, and reforms not one villain by the ending credits.

The movie’s theme is redemption from a hellish place; it couldn’t have been made without these elements.

Conceived and produced by the secular film community, this engrossing film stands as one of the most entertaining, thought-provoking dramas of this century.
