Top Movies of All Time according to IMDB ~ #36 The Green Mile (1999)

Image result for the green mile

I'm pretty sure I made this comment when I reviewed Saving Private Ryan but I'll repeat it again.  I love Tom Hanks.  This was also the breakout movie for Michael Clarke Duncan, another actor I really admire.


The story is about a simple, innocent black man, John Coffey, who is found guilty of raping and murdering two little girls and sentenced to death.  Coffey has a profound effect on the guards on death row, especially when they learn of his special gift which is a blessing to others and a curse to him.


This movie is so moving that I dare you not to cry.
