My favorite character is Andy Dufresne in The Shawshank Redemption. It is an old movie and I first watched it when I was a college student. It is the most brilliant movie that I have ever seen.
From Andy, I learnt that no matter how you are struggling in your present life, there is always a method to solve all the problems. I have been inspired a lot by Andy's story. When I am going through a tough time, I would tell myself that this condition is not worse than what Andy encountered, so don't be frustrated, take a deep breath and try to stay calm, then you will find that the solution is right in front of your eyes.
It might seem stupid because Andy is just a fictional character, but hope is a good thing, valuable and real.
