  • “The one thing that doesn’t abide by majority rule is one’s conscience.“

    This movie deals with the profoundest human emotions and feelings: innocence and guilt, kindness and brutality, love and hatred. No wonder that this novel has been translated into more than forty languages and is considered a masterpiece of literature.

  • “Things are never as bad as they seem.”

    I especially like the characters Harper Lee created in his timeless story. Scout, a six-year-old girl, tells us about diverse happenings in her small home town Maycomb and gives us insight into the court case of Tom Robinson. Tom Robinson is black and is accused of raping and beating a white woman. Atticus Finch, father of Scout, takes over his defense. Scout’s storytelling is pure and honest, and very believable.
