When I saw this movie at the cinema I did not know what the story was about and started to doubt buying the ticket when someone told me that there were T-shirts for sale saying "I survived the Green Mile", referring to the length of the film. However, this movie just drew me in and I was so captivated by the story, the characters and the film itself, I had to read the screenplay. If you enjoyed the movie you will reslih reading the screenplay which brings back to life the story and also provides another forum to experience the movie. The screenplay includes photos, shows examples of the story boards (including a couple of deleted scenes) and comments by both Stephen King and Frank Darabont. It is also interesting to note that they have collaborated before on "Shawkshank Redemption". A wonderful read.
