Beautiful movie. It has everything. It's also one of the best film adaptations of a Stephen King novel. The connection King forges between his stories/characters and his readers is difficult to transfer to the screen - but The Green Mile succeeds amazingly well. One of my all time favourites.

I really enjoyed this film but the prologue and epilogue were unnecessary and far too long. Excellent acting all round and a good story with well developed characters.
