Gregory Peck won an Oscar® for his brilliant performance as the 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. The setting is a dusty Southern town during the Depression. A white woman accuses a black man of rape. Though he is obviously innocent, the outcome of his trial is such a foregone conclusion that no lawyer will step forward to defend him – except Peck, the town's most distinguished citizen. His compassionate defense costs him many friendships but earns him the respect and admiration of his two motherless children.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Minor shortcomings in a rewarding film.
Fresh: Harper Lee's highly regarded first novel has been artfully and delicately translated to the screen.
Fresh: Universally recognized as a classic, and the label is well deserved.
Fresh: Harper Lee's child's-eye view of southern bigotry gains something in its translation to the screen by Robert Mulligan, who knows exactly where to place the camera to catch a child's subjective experience.
One of the best classics
This movie is one of the most moving films I have seen. This movie is a great adaption of the classic novel and Gregory Peck's performance makes you admire him as a hero. I give this movie a five star recommendation.
Indeed a classic...
Although I would suggest reading the book first, this movie not only utilizes the story in a meaningful way but displays solid acting and cinematography that has solidified it as a classic film.
