The camera pulls back to reveal the beautiful blue of the Pacific, the ocean with no memories. From the grin on Red’s face it is as blue as it has been in his dreams. As the music soars so does the camera, into the heavens showing the vast limitless space these two men who were both confined to cages for decades now have the ability to roam in their leisure.
The Shawshank Redemption (1994). In the late 1940s, Tim Robbins as model prisoner Andy Dufresne befriends the old Shawshank Prison librarian (James Whitmore as Brooks Hatlin, who calls his library job “Easy peasy Japanesey”) and transforms the library into a well-stocked collection over the next 23 years. He offers high-school-equivalency educational programs, opera-appreciation day, and tax services for prison officials. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0111161/
