Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning autobiographical novel was translated to film in 1962. Set a small Alabama town in the 1930s, the story focuses on scrupulously honest, highly respected lawyer Atticus Finch, magnificently embodied by Gregory Peck. Finch puts his career on the line when he agrees to represent Tom Robinson (Brock Peters), a black man accused of rape. Seen through the eyes of Finch’s six-year-old daughter Scout (Mary Badham), the trial and the events surrounding it blast open the racism and prejudices of small town America. As timely as ever, this film is a true classic – where perceptiveness is found in the characters; their failings and fragility, their heroism and nobility of spirit.
To Kill A Mockingbird won Academy Awards for Best Actor (Peck), Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Art Direction.
