To Kill A Mockingbird

Adapted by Christopher Sergel, based on the novel by Harper Lee

Directed by Roseann Sheridan

Harper Lee’s Pulitzer-Prize winning story. Set in depression-era Maycomb, Alabama, in 1935, a spirited young girl called Scout grows up all too soon as racial injustice envelops her small-town community. Her father, Atticus Finch, is a lawyer who risks his safety and the safety of his family as he courageously seeks the truth. Moving, poignant, powerful. Unforgettable. As timely today as it was over 50 years ago.
