-Book/ Film: The Green Mile
- Author/ Director: Frank Darabont
-Characters/ Actors:Tom Hanks, David Morse, Bonnie Hunt, Michael Clarke Duncan, Harry Dean Stanton and James Cromwell
The Green Mile is a american drama film directed by Frank Darabont and adapted by him from the 1996 Stephen King novel of the same name. The film is told in a flashback format and stars Tom Hanks as Paul Edgecomb and Michael Clarke Duncan as John Coffey, and tells the story of Paul and his life as a death row corrections officer during the Great Depression in the United States.This movie was filmed in Louisiana, United States.
The plot of this movie, Paul Edgecomb worked in was called the "Green Mile" by the guards, because the condemned prisoners walking to their execution are said to be walking "the last mile" to the electric chair. One prisoner call, John Coffey, he is a farmer, gian and blackmen; he stay here because, he killing two young white girls.He demostrates that he is not a killer, opposite john, fearing darkness, and crying almost constantly for apparently no reason.One day, John reveals extraordinary powers by healing Paul urinary tract infection and resurrecting a mouse.The wife's of the boss of Paul has a problem cereveral, John with his powers try to cure her.
In my opinion the acting of Tom Hanks was exceptional, and Michael Clarke Duncan was exeptional, but background music was dispointing.And the direction played was a principal role in this movie.
One a scene, when John electrocuted in the chair was very exciting, but has very bad special effects and the music was not appropriate for that time.Other scene is when the mouse, called Mr. bells dies, is saddest scene that I've ever seen from this movie.
A film is infused with an expansive, and transmits a sadness and sorrow , sometimes I have the impression that John is going to died in few minutes.
If you want to watch a movie to cry this is indicated...
