Synopsis

Set in Depression-era Alabama in the 1930s, To Kill A Mockingbird is a tale about the effects of racism, ignorance and injustice. An idealistic white lawyer takes the case of a Black man falsely accused of committing an awful crime against a white woman. The story is told from the perspective of the lawyer's six-year-old daughter, Scout, who observes the prejudice and integrity among the townspeople and those involved in the trial with fascination. The film is a thought-provoking interpretation of the Pulitzer Prize winning book by author Harper Lee.
