Escape from Shawshank
1947 A Maine court hears the case of Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins), a vice president of a large bank, accused of murdering his wife and her lover. Dufresne does not admit his guilt, but does not remember what he did on the night of the murder, as he was drunk. Shortly before the murder, Dufresne caught his wife in a scandal with another man, but rejected his wife’s application for divorce. That night, the wife left the house with the intention of meeting her lover, and Dufresne, after going into a bar and drinking a lot of alcohol, went to the house where his wife was, but there was no one there, and he decided to wait there together; he had a gun with him.
After some time of waiting, he sobered up and, throwing his weapon into the river, went home, and in the morning the maid found the bodies of his wife and her lover in that house; they were killed, but who did it? The film is very interesting and this is just the beginning of the story.
Interesting fact. The Mansfield Correctional Facility, also known as the Ohio State Penitentiary, is a prison located in Mansfield, Ohio, USA. It was built between 1886-1910 and operated until 1990, when it was closed. The prison has been the setting for several films, TV shows and music videos, but she gained the most fame for her role in the 1994 film Escape from Shawshank as Shawshank Prison in Maine.

The Godfather
1945, New York. Guests enjoy the wedding of Connie Corleone and Carlo Rizzi, the daughter of the famous mafia, Vito Corleone. The youngest son Michael, a retired Navy captain and hero of the war that just ended, tells his girlfriend Kay Adams about the guests at the wedding. The famous singer Johnny Fontane, the godson of Don Vito, whom he took into custody at one time, is invited and he asks for help. He wants to get a role in the film, but the head of the film studio, Jack Volz, categorically refuses. Don Vito sends his advisor Tom Hagen to Los Angeles to see Volz. Volz rejects Hagen, but the next morning finds the severed head of his precious stallion in bed. Don can’t be denied. The famous phrase «I will make you an offer that cannot be refused» is from this film if anyone does not remember. The film is gorgeous, and all its parts.
