#4 – The Green Mile
This 1999 movie, based on a book by Stephen King and directed by Frank Darabont, follows a group of Death Row (the titular Green Mile) guards led by Paul Edgcomb (Hanks again, and later Dabbs Greer) and their time with John Coffey (Michael Clarke Duncan) before his execution for murder. Coffey, as it turns out, is a miracle worker who can heal the sick and dying; he is also innocent. Tragically, Paul and his colleagues have no choice but to execute him anyway. Many years later, Paul tells a friend that Coffey once healed him and as a result he has lived to be 108 years old. Since Coffey also healed a mouse that lived over 60 years, how long is Paul doomed to watch the people he loves die? Even worse, Paul sees this as a fitting punishment for his role in the execution. He longs for death, but does not know how long his own Green Mile will be.
