Another great article. Now I'm already thinking about what little "client climaxes" I could sneak into my universe.

As far as your question, I don't think Shawshank Redemption really counts as a client climax (jailbreak during a storm, though the "how" reveal at the end is quite-ish), but is quite quiet compared to today's cinema fare. A classic I can watch over and over again, either way!

Shawshank is so great and yes, I would qualify that as a quiet climax. Because it was showing you all the things you missed along the way. So satisfying!
