Shawshank Redemption VS. Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption There is always allot of discussion on a book vs. a movie. Which one is better? Witch one has more action, meaning, emotion or desire? What are the main differences? Shawshank Redemption was a story of hope. This hope is in Andy Dufresne. He always has hope though his trials that he is innocent, hope that he can get through prison, and hope that he can get. Then again everyone in Shawshank is innocent.

The viewers saw much hardships that were endured by Andy and loved his journey to the freedom he
