To Kill A Mockingbird (1962)

One of the all-time great cinematizations of literature, TKAM masterfully orchestrates its classic novel with authenticity down to every page and chef d’oeuvre Peck-led performances – bringing to life the bildungsroman of warmth and humor juxtaposed w. gripping drama on crucial themes of rape, law, and racism. 9.5/10.
