Tim Robbins played Andy Dufresne in The Shawshank Redemption.
He first goes to Portland, Maine to withdraw all of the money (from the warden's schemes) from the banks and to mail the letter and evidence of the warden's schemes to the Por…tland Daily Bugle newspaper. He then travels to Zihuatanejo, Mexico.
We see Andy break through his lack of hope in the portion of the film wherein Andy broadcasts operatic music through the prison, is sent to serve a week in 'The Hole' and retu…rns to his friends. He discusses with his friends that he felt much more at ease, and he would even term his solitary confinement 'easy' as he was filled with renewed hope. Music had set him free, for it was the one thing they could never take away from him. This event symbolised the emancipation of Andy, and the discovery by Andy of the redemptive power of hope.
He first goes to Portland, Maine, where he withdraws all of the money (from the warden's schemes) he has deposited at various banks. He then travels to Zihuatanejo, Mexico.
Before being sentenced to prison, Andy is a banker. While in prison, Andy helps the guards prepare their income tax returns and he keeps the warden's financial records regardi…ng his illegal kickback scheme. After spending years digging a tunnel, Andy escapes to Mexico.
Red committed murder.
He was convicted of murdering his wife and her lover, a golf pro.
He was in in early late 20s or early 30s when he first arrive at Shawshank Prison.
No, Bogs and the Sisters were going to make him perform oral sex on them, but he convinced them not to. He was, instead, beat to within an inch of death. Actually he was rape…d before disagreeing for oral sex
Exactly as they are in the movie, there are almost no differences between the book and movie. Andy introduces himself to Red in the exercise recess yard and understands Red is… a man who knows how to get things, and Red concurs that he has been known to "procure various and sundry items" from time to time, and they build their relationship from there.
He is quick with numbers, he is persistance, he is able to listen keenly, he can hear music in his brain, he is convincing, and he is scornful of the Hadley and the Warden.
Yes, he was innocent, but was convicted because he looked guilty. He got drunk and planned to shoot his wife and her lover, but at the last minute he lost his nerve and decide…d not to. Purely coincidentally, another man shot the two adulterous lovers, that same night, with the same caliber gun that Andy planned to use (a .38). Andy threw his gun into a river, but even though law enforcement performed an exhaustive search of the river, they never found it. Andy had no alibi (he went home alone to sleep it off), and since his gun couldn't be found, he couldn't prove that his gun did not fire the bullets (no comparison could be made between it and the bullets that killed the lovers). The evidence against Andy seemed overwhelming so the jury convicted him.
After he escaped, on his way to Mexico.
Andy sends his request letters for library funding to the MaineState Senate
