Plot Summary

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.

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.
