There is nothing better than watching a movie on the big screen. In this instance, that was never more true. I saw things I had never noticed before when I watched this movie on my TV set. The wonderful sets made you feel like you were right there in that town in another era.

All performances were so real. The two children acted like children and every one of their thoughts showed up on their faces. Gregory Peck deserved his oscar as he was the ever steady presence and guidance for his two children and others.

Interestingly enough all the pearls of wisdom didn't just come from him but perhaps because of his guidance, both Jem and Scout surprise us all with the way they stand up for what's right and show their loyalty and human decency.

I loved this movie before but am now more attracted to it for its harsh reality, sweet innocence and hopeful message.

Thanks for making it available on the big screen.
