  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Based on the novel by Stephen King, The Green Mile tells the story of the Death Row section of the Cold Mountain Correction Facility. John Coffey (Duncan), a giant of a man, is awaiting execution for two brutal murders. But the guards (Hanks, Morse, & Pepper) begin to notice something strange about this kind and gentle man

DVD Picture:
Like the previously released DVD, the anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 picture is beautifully rendered, with warm, fully saturated hues to accentuate the feel of the penitentiary in the sultry South of the 1930s. Colors are rich and nicely balanced, with deep pure blacks. Images are sharp and finely detailed, down to the beads of sweat on the actors
