From Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, director Robert Mulligan and screenwriter Horton Foote created a memorable film worthy of its Academy Award nomination for Best Picture. To Kill a Mockingbird vividly visualizes all the tension and hatred found in Lee’s classic. Gregory Peck won the Best Actor Oscar for his performance as an upstanding lawyer in 1930s Alabama defending an innocent black man against charges of raping a white woman. Mulligan presents his adaptation through a child’s eyes and subsequently conjures up powerfully innocent emotions about racism at its worst and a man of principle at his best.
