  • A new love. A new hometown. Peter Appleton is having the time of his life... by living someone else’s life. Directed by Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile), The Majestic is both a valentine to the movies and the story of one man’s discovery of his own integrity. 

    Jim Carrey plays Peter, a Hollywood screenwriter who stumbles into tiny Lawson, California, with his memory blanked out by an auto accident.  There, he’s mistaken by the citizenry to be a long-lost war hero...an identity that Peter also comes to believe while restoring the town’s shuttered movie palace and romancing the girl (Laurie Holden) he supposedly left behind. It’s the perfect life and, perhaps, the truth is about to surface.

  • Paul Edgecomb (Tom Hanks) is a slightly cynical veteran prison guard on death row in the 1930’s. His faith, and sanity, deteriorated by watching men live and die, Edgecomb is about to have a complete turn around in attitude. Enter John Coffey (Oscar nominated Michael Clarke Duncan). 

    He’s eight feet tall. He has hands the size of waffle irons. He’s been accused of the murder of two children… and he’s afraid to sleep in a cell without a night-light. And Edgecomb, as well as the other prison guards – Brutus, a sympathetic guard, and Percy, a stuck-up, perverse, and violent person, are in for a strange experience that involves intelligent mice, brutal executions, and the revelation about Coffey’s innocence and his true identity. This Academy Award nominated tale is the second collaboration from the writer (Stephen King) and the director of Shawshank Redemption.
