To Kill a Mockingbird

Scout Finch, 6, and her older brother Jem live in sleepy Maycomb, Alabama, spending much of their time with their friend Dill and spying on their reclusive and mysterious neighbor, Boo Radley. When Atticus, their widowed father and a respected lawyer, defends a black man named Tom Robinson against fabricated rape charges, the trial and tangent events expose the children to evils of racism and stereotyping.

Movie Reviews:

  • Andres Gomez: If you like children’s story, you would love this movie about how the world is shaped from their eyes.

    If you don’t … you may find some entertainment in the picture of Southern US and the racial fight that was taking place at the time …

  • barrymost: The part Gregory Peck played in this was reportedly his most favorite role. And he does a marvelous job of it too, as Atticus Finch, the Southern lawyer who agrees to take on the case of a black man falsely accused of rape. The story, from Harper Lee’s classic novel, is in itself wonderful. It’s filled with brilliant and iconic sequences, just a couple memorable ones being the dramatic courtroom scenes where Finch tries his best to make the prejudiced townsfolk see sense, and the intriguing side-plot of his children’s growing curiosity and involvement with their eccentric, hermit-like neighbor that no one’s ever actually seen. He is, of course, Arthur (Boo) Radley, played by none other than Robert Duvall in his feature film debut.

    Would I recommend? Yes, without a doubt, to anyone and everyone who knows how to enjoy a great film.
