A movie, based on a novel by Stephen King featuring Tom Hanks as Paul Edgecomb, a prison guard at the death row (called "The Green Mile") in 1935. Paul and the other guards (being in their very psychically-pressuring job) form special relationships with their prisoners, which are doomed to end as soon as their execution's date comes. One day, a huge black prisoner named John Coffey arrives, after being convicted for a horrible crime - and turns out to be the most remarkable and amazing of all.

The movie pictures in detail a couple of electric chair executions, some of them being pretty terrifying. The movie itself is very touching and dramatic at some moments, and generally a very good movie.
