I present to you one of the saddest movies ever made. It’s a period piece. It’s about spirituality, politics and taboos. It takes place on death row; in a small prison where there is proximity between the guards and the inmates. Most characters have depth, here, but one in particular stands out; a tall black man who may or may not have magical powers. Of course, he does. We find out soon enough.
Stephen King wrote this story, so there is magic. Magic is so important that, like all the subplots that first appear superfluous, it is very meaningful. Even things we consider unimportant, like a mouse that gets a ten-minute exposition, everything finds its purpose once all is said and done. The ending is particularly touching, and the rest of the movie is just as involving.
Some of the people we will meet will die, some will survive the cruel thing that is life. This is a movie about death in all its vicious forms; disease, death sentence, murder, torture. Michael Clarke Duncan’s character has a tragic path. Tom Hanks plays a strict but fair executioner. The whole cast is convincing. This film is nearly flawless. It will stress you out then make you cry like a baby.
