The Bottom Line: great movie dont show around children though!
This Movie Has to be on my top 5 of all time!
With Tom Hanks Being the lead role you can sure count on it being good. When my father tried to get me to watch this I first judged the movie my its name. I know the name sounds really cheesy. But Starting off with the old man in the nursing home till the credits it is dramatically packed!
Stephen King is known to be one of the greatest author's of the current day society. I believe Frank Darabont (director) did a wonderful job reinacting what the book portrays.
The synopsis is as follows: The lives' and deaths' of people on death row. With a main focus being on the officers there and one man impaticular know as John Coffey "except not spelled the same" you grow to love this character as you discover what an amazing gift he has. You also have alot of sub plots involved of other prisoners etc. Like a wild rambunctious prison inmate , another quite peacful one and another one whom you dont get to know that well.
Oh and Also you get see the electrecution and it gets quite graphic for a movie that is so great
