Small-town Alabama, 1932. Atticus Finch (played by Gregory Peck) is a lawyer and a widower. He has two young children, Jem and Scout.

This is why I watch movies. Every once in a while I stumble upon such a masterpiece which moves me to tears, because it reminds me that, all bad things aside, there is good in all of us - we just have to help each other search for it and bring it to light.

The rest of the cast are great as well, and a special mention goes to Elmer Bernstein for his delicate and so appropriate score.
I love this movie and recommend it to anyone. 10/10
