     If you don't know what this movie is about, if you haven't read the book.... Well then I can't help you.

     I'm just kitten, although I am serious, you should know this book/movie by now. If you can read online and you can work a computer, then you must be old enough to have gone to school which also means that this book has been assigned to you by this point in time.

     This movie is about a man, Atticus, whom his kids call even. He is a man to look up to, a man that most men would love to become, if they are man enough at all. He is a lawyer. And has taken on a case that is most inspiring. The reason why this story is so amazing. The story is told by a woman, his daughter later in life. Her name is Scout, and she is proud of her dad. His case is set around the depression era, and is also set in the South. Atticus is to defend an African American man, against an insane white woman who claims he raped her. The most amazing part in the movie, is after the trial, when Atticus starts to walk out the courtroom, all the African american people stand up in honor of him. It truly is amazing, and will have you all choked up.

     To Kill A Mockingbird is terrific, and a must see movie. Also a must read too. You have to watch this movie to appreciate, not only Atticus Finch, but also Gregory Peck. :)


  1. This is a great American classic. It popped into our culture in a time when many were still unwilling to confront the injustice of the irrationality of racial hatred and prejudice. How injustice seemed in the eyes of a child, as her father stood for an innocent man, how her brother emulated his father's bravery in the penultimate scene, and how mistrust, distrust and shame are peeled away when we see proper justice meted out by Beau Radley.

    1. I've been on a Gregory Peck kick recently. Saw Gentleman's agreement. Loved it. He was a great actor, with a great soul. To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my favorites. :)
