    Synopsis


    The Green Mile
    Director Frank Darabont, who made an acclaimed feature film debut with The Shawshank Redemption (1994), based on a Stephen King novel set in a prison, returns for a second feature, based on King's 1996 serialized novel set in a prison. In 1935, inmates at the Cold Mountain Correctional Facility call Death Row "The Green Mile" because of the dark green linoleum that tiles the floor. Paul Edgecomb (Tom Hanks) is the head guard on the Green Mile when a new inmate is brought into his custody: John Coffey (Michael Clarke Duncan), convicted of the sadistic murder of two young girls. Despite his size and the fearsome crimes for which he's serving time, Coffey seems to be a kind and well-mannered person who behaves more like an innocent child than a hardened criminal. Soon Edgecomb and two of his fellow guards, Howell (David Morse) and Stanton Barry Pepper), notice something odd about Coffey: he's able to perform what seem to be miracles of healing among his fellow inmates, leading them to wonder just what sort of person he could be, and if he could have committed the crimes with which he was charged. The Green Mile also stars James Cromwell as the warden; Michael Jeter, Sam Rockwell, and Graham Greene as inmates awaiting dates with the electric chair; and Harry Dean Stanton as a clever trustee. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      This is an amazing movie. Tom Hanks, as the tale's narrator, once again demonstrates his incredible generosity as an actor. Tom Hanks is brilliant as prison guard Paul Edgecomb, a man who thought everything in his life was straight-forward only to have his views challenged, turning him into a conflicted character who isn't sure what the right thing to do is.

      Based on a story by horror scribe Stephen King, this 3-hour film has a lot going for it. Motifs of good vs. evil dominate, contrasting warm, selfless characters with others who personify humanity's ugliness. It also credits God with endowing miracle workers.

      This film is one of the best movies made in its genre and in film history. It is just so well directed, and beautifully paced to tell the story properly. It's also hands down one of the best adaptions of Stephen King. The acting is outstanding. This film will always be remembered in film history as a great achievement.

      One of my favorite dramas

      I believe both the Green Mile and the Shawshank Redeption were shot at the same prison, that being said it is a very erie/sad place. Tom Hanks was spectacular...like he is in every movie...but he played his character well and he developed others just as well. It is a sad movie that is loaded with irony. You will fall in love with John Cofee's character and what he brings to the Green Mile. A little long, but it is a must see.

      This is one of my all time favorite movies. The story is so sad but it is so well written it draws you in. The characters range from completely endearing to completely hateful and Persee is so annoying you want to choke him. The story is amazing though; so many believable characters.

      My sister recommended The Green Mile to me back in 1999 and what a surprise I had. This blu ray release is a great transfer, the look and sound of the movie is great and there are some good (SD) extras too. As far as the movie goes, the plot, the acting (with an amazing cast), the script, all are wonderful and makes for a memorable, magical movie.

      Stephen King wrote the novel and screenplay to the Green Mile. We had not seen the film before and had no real preconceived notions about it. Very well done, good characters and development, and something of a surprise ending. A long movie, but worth the time to watch.
