To Kill a Mockingbird

To Kill a Mockingbird ★★★★★

Robert Mulligan’s fantastic adaptation of Harper Lee’s sensational novel does that rare thing of capturing and reproducing every essence of its source material. From the compelling narrative to Gregory Peck’s unforgettable performance, there is nothing to criticise here. To Kill A Mockingbird is the perfect portrayal of childhood naivety, racial prejudice, morality, tolerance and courage. But what stands out more than anything else is how both the book and the film stand the test of time. Despite their age, they remain as poignant today as they did upon release.
