Judeflowerdew’s review published on Letterboxd:
Frank Darabont's two huge films centred around prison go two ways. One is Shawshank Redemption which is mostly happy and then you have The Green Mile which is mostly sad and tearful especially towards the end. Both are beautiful representations of the variety of emotions displayed in Prisons. I will still be thinking of this in a years time as if I watched it yesterday, nothing can replicate that feeling quite like this and Shawshank have both done.
