though it started up slow and a bit annoying and i thought i would end up hating it, it surprisingly picked up pace, with some really really depressing moments, it wound up great.

Great movie...The actors, even the children, were amazing, even Robert Duvall who didn't have any lines!

There's a reason Harper Lee wouldn't let there be another adaptation of her famous novel be produced...Gregory Peck is simply that good. From Scout to Jem to Boo Radley, the excellent portrayals just keep on coming. Big credit must be given to Horton Foote, who was able to adapt Lee's novel in a touching and thoughtful way...there's a reason this film is a classic!

Though strictly speaking the story of a black man (always up for some Brock Peters!) falsely accused of rape and battery on a white woman in the South of the 1930s, or rather, of the white lawyer who dared to represent him, the book and film's twist is that it's experienced through the eyes of the lawyer's children. So while the trial is the central event, the movie takes its time getting to it and continues beyond it to give a more complete picture of what this world is like, who Gregory Peck's character is, and how, in the end, good people may or may not be punished for their acts of kindness. Many childhood stories are about loss of innocence, and though it's not explicit in Scout's story, there's a reason for her adult self to tell it - the realization that the world isn't fair is what all these threads lead to, and that if it's a sin to kill a mockingbird, nevertheless mockingbirds ARE killed. As strong as I'd heard it was, and a great use of a limited perspective to tell a story.

One of the best movies of all time. This movie confronted the ugly monster of racism in a time of inequality. A must-see.

This one has been on my watchlist for over 10 years. Kept postponing watching it so many times in those years. But now that i have finally watched it, all i can say is. Oh boy, this is something truly special.

When I read the novel I thought it was a great story that could have been told better. The film fixes most of the flaws, making it one of the very few cases when the film is better than the book.

A mesmerizing movie, my vocabulary is not enough to describe how cool this film is. If you also love To Kill a Mockingbird like me, I recommend this page, here you can find out a lot of details about the film and the book. I would gladly wipe my memory to watch this masterpiece again!

The court scene really drew me in. The first hour ambles a bit but everything is nicely tied together at the end. The tense moments were really great. Did not agree with the ending, spoiler
