The lives of guards on Death Row are affected by one of their charges: a black man accused of child murder and rape, yet who has a mysterious gift.
That giant brick wall in the background of the prison is made out of lightweight fiberglass. All the walls could be moved to make room for cameras and lighting.
I just can't see God putting a gift like that in the hands of a man who would kill a child.
(at around 33 mins) The crumb from the cheese wafer that the guards feed to Mr. Jingles is lying on the floor after Percy throws his baton at it and is still on the floor when he starts chasing Mr. Jingles with a waste basket but is gone in the next shot when Percy throws the waste basket at the mouse.
There are no opening credits after the title has been shown, followed by the opening scene for place of film. Although it is now commonplace for films to not have opening credits, in 1999 it was somewhat rather unusually and it was considered for a trademark of director Frank Darabont.
