"The Green Mileis" another adaptation of one of Stephen King’s books.
This time the author takes us to the thirties of last century, to block E in one of American prisons where the convicts await the electric chair execution. Film’s atmosphere is quite heavy, coloured rather in dark hues. The burden of life imprisonment and its scent, which permeates entire space, is omnipresent. "Green Mile" touches upon a few important issues; a right to dignity while awaiting the execution, a right to honourable death which is a payment for inglorious deeds.
The film also draws our attention to the fact that it’s easy to accuse somebody of a crime they didn’t commit just because they found themselves in the wrong place in the wrong time.
