Synopsis

In the critically-acclaimed movie To Kill a Mockingbird, attorney Atticus Finch (Gregory Peck, who won both a Golden Globe Award and an Academy Award for his work in the movie) decides to defend a black man (Brock Peters) charged with raping a poor white woman.

The bigoted townspeople would rather lynch the accused than try him, and they make life hell for the lawyer, his daughter, Scout (Mary Badham, who received an Academy Award nomination), and his son Jem (Philip Alford).

While Atticus tries the case, his inquisitive children learn a hard and unforgettable lesson in justice, morality, and prejudice, part of which requires overcoming their fear of their mysterious neighbor Boo Radley (Robert Duvall).

Based on the best-selling novel by Harper Lee.

  • 5 stars "a wonderful beginning for truly great actor. None better. He geniunely lives the part he plays to the fullest. You become completely en-grossed with the character he plays, because he does it so completely natural that you are fully convinced that he is actually that character. I sometimes believe that he actually in his mind, becomes that character."
