6-4-2018 MOVIE REVIEW: THE GREEN MILE (1999)

00:00:00 / 00:00:00

Frank Darabont, whose other directorial work includes "The Shawshank Redemption" returns with a brilliant screenplay adapted from Stephen King's famous serial novel.  "The Green Mile" is set in the 1930's and written from the first-person perspective of a maximum security corrections officer, Paul Edgecomb (Tom Hanks on top of his craft) who writes about his experiences supervising Cold Mountain Prison's death row dubbed The Green Mile.  After John Coffey (an Academy Award-nominated performance by the late Michael Clarke Duncan), a newly arrived, colored inmate who's been wrongfully accused of raping and murdering two young girls, begins his sentence at the famed mile, Edgecomb discovers through a series of remarkable events that Coffey possess supernatural abilities.  Given his innocence, it is up to Edgecomb to decide if this larger than life figure will ride "Old Sparky" like those others destined to do so who stay on The Green Mile.  Perhaps King's finest literary achievement without the usual creeps and scare.  Highly recommended. *** (1/2)
