Gregory Peck won an Oscar for his brilliant performance as the Southern lawyer who defends a black man accused of rape in this film version of the Pulitzer Prize winning novel. The setting is a dusty Southern town during the Depression. A white woman accuses a black man of rape. Though he is obviously innocent, the outcome of his trial is such a foregone conclusion that no lawyer will step forward to defend him - except Peck, the town's most distinguished citizen. His compassionate defense costs him many friendships but earns him the respect and admiration of his two motherless children.

Marvelous - To Kill a Mockingbird review by CM

Spoiler Alert

We watched this with our 10 year old son. We had forgotton that the film was a good example of renforcing moral standards of living to children. It also demonstrated that the way children play with each other hasn't changed over the years.

To Kill a Mocking Bird. - To Kill a Mockingbird review by PH

Spoiler Alert

Somehow missed seeing it in previous years.

A good film of its time and tackled uncomfortable truths but it seemed a bit dated in its acting and I was not as engaged as I had expected.

Gregory Peck at his best - To Kill a Mockingbird review by LE

Spoiler Alert

The real joy of this film lies in superb performances, and it clings to key story of the book, happily ignoring the subplots. The moral standing of Atticus is a learning point for everyone.
