I watched an old American movie on the last weekend, and I very like it. So today I have a review of the the movie to share you guys. To Kill a Mockingbird was based on Harper Lee‘s Pulitzer Prize winning book of 1961. It was filmed in Universal studio Los Angelis, California 1963. Robert Mulligan was the director of the movie. There are a lot of actors and actresses in the movie, but the main actors are Gregory Peck (Atticus Finch), a lawyer, Mary Badham (Scout) Finch’s daughter, Philip Alford (Jem) Finch’s son, John Megna (Dill Harris), a boy who gets into trouble all the time, Brock Peters (Tom Robinson), a black man who had misfortune, and James Anderson (Bob Ewell), a poor white man.
It is a classic movie that tells the story about Atticus Finch, a lawyer in a small town who agrees to defend a young black man accused of raping a white woman. Many of white people in the town tried to get Finch to pull out of the trial, but he decides to go ahead. But, everything is not as easy as he thought. There are many main characters in this movie that I like; Atticus Finch who fought very hard for justice, Scout who was a smart girl but had the character of a tomboy, and Jem, who was a good kid but stubborn. There was also Boo Radley, a mysterious man who did not appear until almost the end of the whole story.
This movie is very well known in the United States, because the book (To Kill a Mockingbird) is a classic. We could see segregation in a small Southern town of Maycomb in the 1930s. Also we can see the capabilities of the actors in the movie. They are very professional at that time, especially Scout who had never acted in a movie before, but she did it very well and professionally. This movie is one of the best movies that I recommend you see. You can click here to watch it. Hope you all enjoy with the movie.
