Critic's Review Heading
Very Good
The Green Mile shares a number of qualities--in addition to being an adaptation of a Stephen King prison story--with writer-director Frank Darabont's previous film The Shawshank Redemption, but one of them is not its astounding excellence; not many will label the new film as the instant classic its predecessor was. But to give that easy criticism is to discount what Darabont and his crew have accomplished, which is craft a heartfelt fable that pushes all the right emotional buttons. Long before its release, The Green Mile has been touted as the movie to beat at the Oscars, and while I cannot honestly say that it's the best film I've seen this year, it would certainly be a worthy winner.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
A flashback narrated by Paul Edgecomb to his friend Elaine Connelly. Edgecomb is now living in an old-age home some six decades after working as the head guard on Death Row at Cold Mountain Penitentiary.

Edgecomb's tour of duty at Cold Mountain in the Depression-era South included watch over a quartet of killers awaiting their final walk down "the Green Mile," the stretch of green linoleum flooring that took convicts from their jail cells to the electric chair.

Over the years, Edgecomb walked the mile with a variety of cons. He had never before encountered someone like John Coffey, a massive black man convicted of brutally killing a pair of nine-year-old sisters. Coffey certainly had the size and strength to kill anyone, but his demeanor starkly contrasted with his appearance. Beyond his simple, naive nature and a deathly fear of the dark, Coffey seemed to possess a prodigious, supernatural gift. Edgecomb began to question whether Coffey was truly guilty of murdering the two girls.
