Product Overview

Miracles happen in unexpected places, even on death row at Cold Mountain Penitentiary. There John Coffey, a prisoner with supernatural powers, brings a sense of spirit and humanity to his guards and fellow inmates. Tom Hanks leads a stellar cast (including Michael Clarke Duncan as Coffey) in this emotional, uplifting story of guards and captives; husbands and wives; prisoners and a remarkable mouse named Mr. Jingles; and, on another level, of a moviemaker and his source. Frank Darabont returns after his 1994 directorial debut The Shawshank Redemption to adapt another Stephen King tale into a crowd-pleasing entertainment nominated for four Academy Awards, including Best Picture.Running Time: 169 min.Format: DVD MOVIE

Editors Note
Note Director Frank Darabont's second adaptation of a Stephen King prison tale (the first being 1994's nearly flawless THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION) is a hopeful charmer with a hint of the supernatural. The story focuses on Paul Edgecomb (Tom Hanks), a Louisiana security guard who works on death row during the Great Depression. When John Coffey (Michael Clarke Duncan), a gigantic black man convicted of raping and murdering two white girls, joins the other prisoners on the row, Paul's life is forever altered. Coffey doesn't fit the mold of a psychopathic killer; he's kind, gentle, and afraid of the dark. As the story progresses, Edgecomb learns that there is something more than simple goodness to Coffey. Building to a hopeful climax, Darabont once again proves that he is King's most loyal cinematic translator. The film features uniformly excellent performances in leading and supporting roles, notably Duncan as Coffey; David Morse and Barry Pepper as Hanks's fellow prison guards; and Michael Jeter as condemned killer Edward Delacroix.

ReviewSource Washington Post
Review ...Darabont has...selected a superb cast to maintain this affecting buoyancy. Hanks is very engaging as Edgecomb, whose dawning conscience--particularly regarding Coffey--informs the entire drama. Morse brings a deep-seated integrity to Brutus, whose gentle wisdom controls his temptation to pummel Wetmore into pulp. As Wetmore and "Wild Bill," Hutchinson and Rockwell are so infuriating, so blissfully hateful, you may find your fingernails boring holes into your palms. And then there's Duncan, whose presence is literally and figuratively, the biggest thing in the movie...

Review ...The Green Mile is at times a powerful motion picture. The characters are well-drawn and ably portrayed, with Tom Hanks filling the shoes of the likable protagonist as only he can, and Doug Hutchison doing a good job making us hate him...But the real standout is Michael Clarke Duncan, who easily acts circles around Hanks--his portrayal of John is often touching and occasionally wrenching. If there's an acting Oscar nomination in The Green Mile's future, it belongs to Dunan, not Hanks...
