For example, in the few minutes of the previous scene before Andy begins to escape we have a narration from Red telling the audience that he believes that Andy is going to kill himself from his recent behaviour when he left solitary after two months of being with his own thoughts. Red says “I’ve had some long nights… alone in the dark with nothing but your thoughts, time can draw out like a blade. That was the longest night of my life.” because of these specific wording of Red’s narration we as the audience automatically expect the worst. This narration and the character of Red is one of the most significant and influential elements of the film to manipulate the audiences emotions towards the one particular scene. The scene following Red’s narration is of the aftermath of Andy Dufresne’s disappearance from the Shawshank prison, we see the Warden unbox what he expects to be his black dress shoes, that he made Andy polish the previous night, yet opens the box to find a set of brown prisoner shoes.
