The Jericho Mile 1979
Michael Mann's debut feature is a story about striving for greatness even when there is no chance to succeed.
Larry (Peter Strauss) is serving a life sentence in Folsom Prison for murder -- a crime he freely admits to committing, prepared to serve out his time by attracting as little outside attention as possible. He focuses on running, circling around a makeshift track in the exercise yard, keeping to himself as he travels at impressive speeds, catching the attention of Dr. Bill (Geoffrey Lewis) and Warden Earl (Billy Green Bush). Sensing something special about Larry's endurance, prison officials bring in Coach Jerry (Ed Lauter) to help educate the inmate on the finer points of long- distance running, with plans to test his abilities against the pros, teasing a possible future in the Olympics if Larry decides to play along with the training peacefully. Larry is interested in the possibility of running his way out of Folsom, but his reputation needs work with officials, while his only friend, Stiles (Richard Lawson), is eager to hold his newborn daughter, getting caught up in prison gang business run by Dr. D (Brian Dennehy) and Cotton Crown (Roger E. Mosley) to win his shot at a family reunion.
