Dark Readers Blurb:
To Kill a Mockingbird is an American classic novel that is read is schools across the nation. I remember learning about the book and then afterwards comparing the film adaptation. 50 years laters, this film has made a debut in BluRay which is spectacular! The picture and sound quality of To Kill a Mockingbird are perfect- and I can't say enough about the BluRay extras!! My favorite by far would have to be the documentary on the making of To Kill a Mockingbird. Filming industries then have changed in many ways, and in other instances not so much. Very interesting to see. To Kill a Mockingbird will make a person laugh, smile, tear up and just think about what life would've been like in those years. For those avid readers in your life, who enjoy a good book to movie adaptation I suggest going out and getting the 50th Anniversary edition of To Kill a Mockingbird!! They will love it :-)
