The Green Mile
- Awards: 4 Academy Award Nominations
The Green Mile is not just one of the best classic movies of this generation, but one of the best movies of all time, period. It is based on Stephen King’s novel of the same name, starring Tom Hanks, Michael Clarke Duncan, and many more. It follows a death row prison guard during the Great Depression who somehow witnesses supernatural events following the arrival of a specific convict at the facility he works for. While Hanks was very established by this film, it was the role that helped Duncan’s career take off.
