Stephen King On Screen

The Green Mile

A gentle giant on death row (Michael Clarke Duncan) possesses an extraordinary gift...

USA 1999
Dir Frank Darabont
With Tom Hanks, Michael Clarke Duncan, David Morse, Sam Rockwell
Certificate 18

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.
