To Kill a Mockingbird ★★★★½

Captures all the heart, wit and energy of Harper Lee’s impeccable novel. Honestly, this is a fantastic adaptation, so much so that I’m not that bothered about parts being omitted. And that’s simply because the writers got so much right about Lee’s world and the way these characters interact. The acting is also phenomenal, the child and adult actors alike, and Gregory Peck is climbing up the ranks of my favourite actors; his performance is perfect. It serves so well at capturing a specific time in one’s life, and exploring the darkest corners of life, as well as the lightest.
