the film   ( 1999 )

In 1999, a film adaptation of Stephen King's miniseries "The Green Mile" was released, starring Tom Hanks, David Morse, Bonnie Hunt, Michael Clarke Duncan, James Cromwell, Michael Jeter, Graham Greene, Doug Hutchison and Sam Rockwell.

The film did an excellent job of bringing King's series to life. The film illustrates the relationship of respect the death row guards have for their charges. Although they have been sentenced to death, the guards still treat them humanely. Of course there is always a bad apple... and an innocent man...
