Andy Dufresne: The Shawshank Redemption – Up Close and Personal

imagesCAXT2TH6Daily Prompt: The Interview

Interview your favorite fictional character.

I approach Andy sitting on a beach. He sits on the sand quietly gazing at the ocean’s waves bursting against the shore.

“Thanks for allowing me to chat with you for awhile, Mr. Dufresne,” I say.

Andy looks out at the Pacific horizon.

“You’re a hard man to find,” I say.

Andy watches the waves break.

“So how has life been in Zihautaneo?” I say.

Andy draws a circle in the sand.

“What did you think of Rita Heyworth’s last movie?”

Red, Andy’s former prison friend and now partner appears over my shoulder. “Do ya want me ta stick him with a shiv or just toss him around a bit?”

Andy stands and walks away. “What ever it takes to shut him up.”

  1. great idea for your interview! it’s also one of my favorite movies, and I can totally see Andy just walking away from the ‘interviewer’.. 😮 he’s that kind of guy: reserved, dry, intelligent… but never up for sharing his thoughts with anyone…

  2. Wow, where I felt my interview had probably drifted on a bit too long, I think you captured the essence of the character beautifully and concisely. Proof that if done right, you don’t have to write an essay to get the message across. Great piece! 🙂

Blather away, if you like.
