To Kill A Mockingbird
directed by Robert Mulligan starring Gregory Peck, John Megna, Frank Overton in English
Atticus Finch, a lawyer in the Depression-era South, defends a black man against an undeserved rape charge, and his kids against prejudice.
To Kill a Mockingbird is a 1962 American drama adaptation of Harper Lee’s novel of the same name, directed by Robert Mulligan. Set in 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. The trial and the events surrounding it are seen through the eyes of Finch’s six-year-old daughter Scout (Mary Badham).
