The Green Mile
Miracles do happen.
A supernatural tale set on death row in a Southern prison, where gentle giant John Coffey possesses the mysterious power to heal people's ailments. When the cellblock's head guard, Paul Edgecomb, recognizes Coffey's miraculous gift, he tries desperately to help stave off the condemned man's execution.

And I thank you for it.

”Sometimes the green mile seems so long.”
Frank Darabont’s third adaptation from a Stephen King novel starts a bit slowly as the film is gradually building its universe but after the first third it finally picks up the pace and then goes full throttle to the end. The Green Mile is a film of characters, the story of a man with supernatural healing powers who is supposedly a miracle of God could have turned into a terribly manipulative film but Darabont’s ability of creating memorable, humane and dynamic characters enables the film to tell its story in the most touching way, like the other notable Darabont/King collaboration, The Shawshank Redemption, this is a goodhearted film…
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
What is there to say about one of the most celebrated and saddest films of all time? Written and directed by the man who gave us the masterpiece The Shawshank Redemption, Frank Darabont, and based off of the best selling novel by Stephen King, The Green Mile is a film that captures you from the beginning and never lets go. It's the celluloid equivalent of a punch to the chest.
The story of a gentle giant, condemned for a heinous crime. One man, with the powers to heal in this time of great weakness and depression. The late Michael Clarke Duncan gives one of the most touching performances I've ever seen as death row inmate, John Coffey, who is seen…
Rarely a movie makes you laugh so much, and cry even more. Even rarer is when a prison movie makes you feel so much. But The Green Mile, and The Shawshank Redemption before it, are not prison movies. Sure, most of the story happens inside the prison walls, but they are about people. Even criminals are likable in these movies. And that is why I love movies. The Green Mile is based on the book by Stephen King, and is directed by Frank Darabont. The acting by Tom Hanks and Michael Clarke Duncan is phenomenal, but the supporting cast is great too. The story, even in those supernatural moments, feels very real. And it is. Many characters from this movie are great and unforgettable. I will remember them for years to come. One of the best movies I have seen.

Thanks for the experience and memory of this lovely movie.
You've ensured you will always be fondly remembered by all who watch it.
From 0:00:00 to 3:08:37, there's not a single scene, a split second, that doesn't fit perfectly in this movie.
A fantastic film, quite possibly Tom Hanks' best. A wonderful cast and brilliant storyline. Would highly recommend inspite of the long running time
I can watch this movie over and over.
After skipping this movie for a thousand times, yesterday I finally watched this classic. Although I found it sometimes a little bit too much of fantasy to my liking and, because of that, not always plausible, the story and messages of this movie really touched my heart! I understand now why a lot of people love it so much. Me too!
This is one of the most heartbreaking movies of all time.
maravilhoso. emocionante. mais uma história de Stephen King sendo muito bem adaptada para as telonas.
