A tough decision, but I think it must be 'The Green Mile'

Paok-Kilkis, that comment triggered spam filter here on GS, I imagine due to lack of punctuation or just general minimalism. Fished it out, anyhow.

Paok-Kilkis,

For your consideration:
Changeling (2008)
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0824747/mediaviewer/rm3721364993
Jason Butler Harner William Charlton and Cooper Thornton in Changeling 2008

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gordon_Stewart_Northcott

On February 13, 1929, [Judge ] Freeman sentenced [Gordon Stewart Northcott] to death and he was hanged on October 2, 1930 at San Quentin State Prison. He was 23 years old.

= = =

Spartacus (1960) ends with the mass crucifixion of Spartacus and his followers. I could not find any suitable images.

Gordon Stewart Northcott and his parents were truly strange people.

You may find the Wikipedia article about the Wineville Chicken Coop murders interesting:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wineville_Chicken_Coop_murders

You may also find these books interesting:

Nothing is strange with you : the life and crimes of Gordon Stewart Northcott
https://www.worldcat.org/search?qt=wikipedia&q=isbn%3A9781436366274

The road out of hell : Sanford Clark and the true story of the Wineville murders
https://www.worldcat.org/search?qt=wikipedia&q=isbn%3A9781402768699

I provided the World Cat entry for both books, so you may be able to find them at your local library.

Breumaster,

"Nothing is strange with you" probably contains more information regarding Northcott. It is a self-published book and could have benefited from having an editor.
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B079KGVM32

I encouraged the author, James Jeffrey Paul, to self-publish when he received multiple rejections from publishers. Mr. Paul gave me an autographed copy as a result. Sadly, Mr. Paul died two years ago.

"The road out of hell" is a story of redemption for Sanford Clark. It contains some additional information about Northcott. I continue to correspond with Tony Flacco.

Thank you  Dan.
I'm curious now about the real story. Clint Eastwood made a very strong movie. It has so strong dramatic moments. But I think his best was 'Million Dollar Baby', closely followed by 'Gran Torino'. When I look at Scorsese, he is a brilliant director. But Eastwood got more humanity in his pictures. I like how  they touch me.
