"This middle school program features the classic film, "To Kill a Mockingbird" (1962, dir. Robert Mulligan), for in-depth study. The lessons and activities, with multiple cross-curricular connections, introduce students to film's narrative structure, film language and the filmmaking process. Students not only learn how to read visual text and analyze narrative structures, but they also explore social issues relative to the historical period in which the film was made." (VPW insert)
Summary: Gregory Peck plays a southern lawyer who defends a black man accused of rape in this film version of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. The way in which it captures a time, a place, and above all, a mood, makes this film a masterpiece
