One of my very favorite films of all time is THE GREEN MILE. From a Stephen King short story, this movie runs the gamut on emotions. We are afraid, revolted, sad, hysterical laughter, in love and beyond. this movie never gets old for me, I always find something new each time I view it... here is what it is about if you have never seen it..or just love it over and over like me...xoK
The lives of guards on Death Row are affected by one of their charges: a black man accused of child murder and rape, yet who has a mysterious gift.

Paul Edgecomb (Tom Hanks) walked the mile with a variety of cons. He had never encountered someone like John Coffey (Michael Clarke Duncan), a massive black man convicted of brutally killing a pair of young sisters. Coffey had the size and strength to kill anyone, but not the demeanor.
