Its emotional rewards outshine its faults.

If this movie doesn't get a truckload of Oscar noms, something's rotten in the kingdom of Hollywood!

Those whose lives Coffey touches may find relief from physical ailments, but they seem no freer, more hopeful, or nobler for the experience.

A moving story, helped by some great performances, primarily by Michael Clarke Duncan as Coffey, Hanks, Hutchison as the guards, and Jeter and Rockwell as prisoners.
