Movie from a book

Based on a Book: Books Made into Movies is a movie series that is being held in conjunction with the Teen/Tween Summer Reading Program. Adults are also welcome to attend the movie. The film for Monday, July 21, is based on the book To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, This unrated, 129 minute film stars Gregory Peck, Mary Badham, Phillip Alford, John Megna, Frank Overton, and Rosemary Murphy. Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning autobiographical novel was translated to film in 1962 by Horton Foote and the producer/director team of Robert Mulligan and Alan J. Pakula. Set a small Alabama town in the 1930s, the story focuses on scrupulously honest, highly respected lawyer Atticus Finch, magnificently embodied by Gregory Peck. Finch puts his career on the line when he agrees to represent Tom Robinson (Brock Peters), a black man accused of rape. The trial and the events surrounding it are seen through the eyes of Finch’s six-year-old daughter Scout (Mary Badham). While Robinson’s trial gives the film its momentum, there are plenty of anecdotal occurrences before and after the court date: Scout’s ever-strengthening bond with older brother Jem (Philip Alford), her friendship with precocious young Dill Harris (a character based on Lee’s childhood chum Truman Capote. To Kill a Mockingbird won Academy Awards for Best Actor (Peck), Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Art Direction. The movie will starts at 11:30 a.m. in the Slater Room. Either snacks or pizza will be served.
