Excellent!! One of the very best films ever made, and my favorite--every part is played perfectly by the actors--very true to Harper Lee's novel. It was wonderful to see this film again on the big screen--and to hear Elmer Bernstein's beautiful score. I could watch that film over and over and never tire of it. This is a film that should be seen by viewers of all ages. Hard to believe that this was the only role to win a Best Actor Oscar for Gregory Peck. He was magnificent in all of his films!

To see this film on the big screen, and in the black and white, was a joy. I wish there were more releases like this. Was though, disappointed that there not that many people in the theatre, and no minorities. This to me would have been a great movie for students to see.

I couldn't believe that a movie I had seen countless times on TV could move me to tears. The dignity of Gregory Peck's interpretation of Atticus Finch and the obvious true affection that was exhibited between Scott and Atticus that spilled over into the real life actors was absolutely wonderful. With the big screen, big feelings and concepts seemed to be the right size for emotions and social statements. Mind blowing!

I have seen To Kill A Mockingbird on TV before, and it is a wonderful movie. However, you do not get the full impact of the movie until you see it on the big screen. At the theatre, you see so many details otherwise missed, and you feel the characters so much deeper. You experience the total silence of the audience as Atticus gives his closing argument. His words are a powerful message about humanity that captivates the room. As he walks out of the courtroom, you admire his dignity and it feels like you are in that courtroom with him. It was an unforgettable experience that I recommend to everyone.

This story is a classic; always has been, always will be. IMO, anyhow. I have loved the novel since I can remember, and the film leaves nothing to be desired. It is one of my favourites, so of course I took the opportunity to see it on the big screen--something I have never had the chance to do.
This ensemble of actors is simply outstanding. The direction, the cinematography, the acting--brilliant. Almost throughout the whole film, I actually felt like I was there with the Finch family, and that I was witnessing everything as if it were happening right in front of me.
Atticus Finch is probably the closest thing to a perfect role model, which to me almost emanates from Peck himself. With so many touching and emotional scenes in this film, I often found myself tearing up. This is a story everyone should take the time to experience.
