With such fantastic source material, "To Kill A Mockingbird" is a prime example of what a well-made adaptation can achieve. A small-town mystery mixed with poignant, unwavering social critique of the time it portrays, made at a turning point in American Civil Rights History. A sight to behold.
I don't remember a time where a book has made me cry, except for To Kill A Mockingbird. The book was wonderful, but unfortunately the movie could not be as complete as the original book though. However, Gregory Peck was everything I was expecting from Atticus Finch.
Even at its most sentimental, there's a purity and sincerity about this film that makes it rise above other small town dramas. Most of the time, it doesn't feel like you're looking at actors or sets; it feels like a real world. What I love most about this film is Atticus Finch, perfectly embodied by Gregory Peck. His impeccable (but not self-righteous) moral strength makes him one of the great cinematic heroes.
Storia dai toni sensibili e mostrata attraverso gli occhi dei bambini, che analizza e critica con semplicità ed efficacia il razzismo e i pregiudizi del tempo. Ottima struttura narrativa e giusto ritmo. I personaggi sono molto interessanti e ben caratterizzati. Regia di qualità, senza sbavature e con inquadrature ben studiate.Belle soggettive e bello scontro finale. Musiche ottime che seguono l'andamento del racconto
