1999 M Contains violence.

Miracles do happen.

Miracles happen in unexpected places, even in the death-row cellblock at Cold Mountain Penitentiary. There John Coffey, a gentle giant of a prisoner with supernatural powers, brings a sense of spirit and humanity to his guards and fellow inmates. Tom Hanks leads a stellar ensemble (including Michael Clarke Duncan as Coffey) in this emotional, uplifting story of guards and captives; husbands and wives; prisoners and a remarkable mouse named Mr. Jingles; and, on another level, of a moviemaker and his source. That filmmaker is Frank Darabont, who returns after his 1994 directorial debut The Shawshank Redemption to adapt another tale by Stephen King into a stirring, crowd-pleasing entertainment nominated for 4 Academy Awards, including Best Picture.

A very enjoyable movie. Good quality acting that made it a very believable story even though it stretched your imagination a bit. I am a fan of Tom Hanks and he was very good in his role very well supported by the other actors.

I read the books only days before catching this on TV. Excellent concept and touching until the end. One of those weird movies that make you feel confused in the end.
