To Kill a Mockingbird review
Daniel Corleone - wrote on 08/29/11
Gregory Peck does an astounding job as the morally correct Lawyer Atticus Finch. Definitely a memorable performance and the kids likewise did a remarkable job. One of the few film's in its time with dual premises. A black man convicted of murder and the horrific tales of Arthur "Boo" Radley. The score, supporting cast, brilliant screenplay made the film interesting. Peck shines and the quotes are unforgettable. Atticus Finch - "You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view, until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it." "In our courts, all men are created equal. I'm no idealist to believe firmly... in the integrity of our courts and of our jury system. That's no ideal to me. That is a living, working reality!" "Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird," One the best courtroom dramas with universal themes of racism, humanism, justice system, equal rights and importance of family. To Kill a Mockingbird is truly a classic that never gets old because of the brilliant acting, intellectual script and lively score.
