The Green Mile


Set on death row in a Southern prison, USA, the film is about a gentle black giant and the effect he has on the people around him. While simple-minded, he is blessed with an amazing gift. It is not long before the head of the block realises that his prisoner is innocent, but he is powerless to prevent the execution.
One of this year's top Oscar contenders.
