Friday Film Series: Hero Worship Hollywood Style

Each month, we’ll watch a different movie that asks, “What makes a person a hero”?

To Kill a Mockingbird (1962)

Friday September 6, 7:00 PM – 9:15 PM

This film version of To Kill a Mockingbird was released in 1962 at the height of the Civil Rights Movement and was acclaimed by the critics and general public, winning three Academy Awards.

Harper Lee loved the film and called the screenplay “a masterful piece of craftsmanship.”

She was especially impressed by Gregory Peck’s portrayal of Atticus Finch who brought sincerity and intelligence to the role and created a masterful portrait of Atticus.
