    Default The shawshank redemption - is Andy guilty?

    I was watching this movie last night and decided that i think Andy was guilty of the crime that sent him to prison.

    I have seen the movie many times and always just assumed he was innocent but didn't feel that way this time.

    I wonder what other peoples thoughts are??

    How's the serenity?

    I reckon he was innocent.. what made u think Guilt this time around?

    I do think he is a "lateral" thinker and may have been guilty of other simmilar crimes that he was never caught for and always sorta thought "well, this is my pennance" - but innocent of the "convicted" crime..

    Now I will have to hunt it out and watch it again today!!

    Sometimes people look into the sun and see nothing but the eternal dark
    Instead of attacking them, why not share some of your sun?

    Be KIND today and everyday.

    I only watched the first half and the last half is a bit hazy in my memory but what got me thinking was the following:

    • He was outside with a gun and then his gf and her lover got killed. It seems a mighty coincidence that someone else did it (although i guess he could have been framed that way )
    • He doesn't show much emotion (if any) and i tend to think if you were sent to life in prison for a crime you didn't do wouldn't you be more upset?
    • One scene where Red asks him if he did it and he says 'I'm innocent, like everyone else in here' seemed like a subtle confession to me
    • I think he maybe assumed he would get away with it and had to keep up the innocent story or any chance of getting off would be ruined
    • Or maybe he went crazy for a short while - did it - but blocked it out and truly thinks he is innocent but isn't
    then again perhaps i think too much

    How's the serenity?

    Lots of views but only one reply - surely if you have seen the movie you have an opinion either way

    Please share

    It is my favourite movie.

    I am sort of the same as you...leaning towards guilt.

    I have previously always thought innocent though.

    I dunno.

    This is one of my favourite movies and I too always assumed he was innocent.

    The more I think about it though - you may be right and perhaps he was guilty

    I didn't watch it the other night but have it on DVD so I might just pull it out and watch it tonight....

    Nope....innocent. The "fonzie" type guy shared a cell with someone else who boasted he killed a rich Bankers wife and her lover and the rich Banker aka Andy was done for the crime. Innocent

    It is one of my favourite movies too.
