Alternative messages of films – The Shawshank Redemption

All films tend to have a message in them, usually about how the good will always win, however there is usually an alternative message.

In the Shawshank Redemption, the main character is sent to prison for a crime he didn’t commit. While there he uses his skills in finance to help the Warden launder money in return for privileges which he uses to help other inmates prior to escaping with evidence of the crimes.

The alternative message is that whatever happens in life, take full advantage of opportunities that present themselves and always keep dirt on those you work with!
