Set in Depression-era Alabama in the 1930s, To Kill a Mockingbird tells the story of an idealistic white lawyer who takes the case of a black man falsely accused of committing an awful crime against a white woman. With six-year-old Scout as the storyteller, we see the effects of racism, ignorance and injustice. This excellent film is a thought-provoking interpretation of the Pulitzer Prize winning book by author Harper Lee and features a strong cast of actors that suck you in as the story unfolds.
PLEASE BE AWARE: After ordering To Kill A Mockingbird the disc you receive may be marked as being a 12 certificate - however, this relates to the extra features on the DVD and not the film itself, which is certified with the BBFC as a PG Into Film has consulted the BBFC, and their guidance is that as long as a club leader screens only the film (and not additional features or audio commentaries etc), To Kill A Mockingbird can be treated as a PG certificate in a school setting.
