To Kill a Mockingbird
Robert Mulligan's classic adaptation of Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel set in the racially charged atmosphere of Macon County, Alabama in the 1930s, TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD is a poignant coming-of-age story. It is told from the perspective of a young girl nicknamed Scout (Mary Badham) whose widowed father Atticus Finch (Peck), an attorney, decides to defend a black man (Brock Peters) charged with raping a white woman. But the bigoted townspeople would rather lynch the accused than try him, and they make life hellish for the lawyer, his daughter and his son Jem. While their father is in the throes of the trial, his bright, inquisitive children learn a hard and unforgettable lesson in justice, morality and prejudice, part of which requires overcoming their unfounded fear of their mysterious neighbour Boo Radley (a very young Robert Duvall).
