The Green Mile
A gentle giant on death row (Michael Clarke Duncan) possesses an extraordinary gift...
Dir Frank Darabont
With Tom Hanks, Michael Clarke Duncan, David Morse, Sam Rockwell
Frank Darabont’s second feature-length King adaptation saw him once again venture behind bars (Cold Mountain Penitentiary this time, as opposed to Shawshank) to tell the story of a gentle giant on death row in possession of an extraordinary gift. But while the prison setting may be familiar, this emotional juggernaut of a film combines brooding melodrama with a healthy dose of magical realism, to offer up something very unique indeed.
