To Kill a Mockingbird

To Kill a Mockingbird ★★★★★

Until this most recent viewing, I don't think I'd seen To Kill a Mockingbird since my 9th-grade English class, and back then I wasn't all that interested in watching it, even though I enjoyed the book. But having revisited the film, I find that I am upset with my 15-year-old self -- I should have paid more attention to the film. The story of To Kill a Mockingbird is a bit dated but still resonates today, to some extent, but the main reason the film still works is because of Gregory Peck and his young supporting actors -- all are on their game here, though none more so than Peck. To Kill a Mockingbird remains a fantastic feature, a courtroom drama and classic adaptation that holds up extremely well, even in today's time.
