Added DiffLines:

* TheBully: Captain Hadley clearly loves the power and authority his position gives him and takes every opportunity he can to remind the inmates that he can do anything he wants. Tellingly, after inheriting $35,000 from his brother (roughly equal to $300,000 today) the thought of quitting his position never occurs to him.

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: After Andy cuts a deal with Hadley (that almost gets him thrown off the roof), he asks as payment that he buys the convicts beer when they're done tarring the roof. Heywood offers a cold one to Andy, and cracks up laughing when Andy tells him he quit drinking.


Added DiffLines:

** Andy goes out and gets drunk at the beginning of the film when his wife demands a divorce. When he arranges for the convicts to get beer later in the film (something that almost gets him thrown off the roof for his trouble), he declines a bottle for himself, saying he gave up drinking. [[ActuallyPrettyFunny Even Heywood finds it rather funny]].

In 1947, young banker Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins) is convicted and found guilty of the murder of his wife and her lover; he is sentenced to life in prison, and his sentence is to be served at Maine's Shawshank penitentiary. The conditions are terrible, many of his fellow prisoners are sadistic, and many of the guards are even worse -- but life begins to look up as Dufresne becomes acquainted with an old black con, Ellis Redding (Creator/MorganFreeman, who also serves in-character as the movie's narrator), commonly referred to as Red. A friendship begins after Red (whose nickname is drawn from his surname; in the original story he was a red-haired Irishman and his real name was never given), "the man who knows how to get things," procures a rock hammer for Dufresne, an object he wishes to own in order to carve an alabaster-and-soapstone chess set. The friendship will only strengthen over the coming years.
