First Potter movie is a magical ride but also intense.
Growing up in a small Southern town, Jem and Scout Finch
think they know their family and neighbors. There's Boo Radley,
the neighborhood recluse, whom the children attempt to lure out
of hiding. Cranky old Mrs. Dubose is secretly addicted to
morphine. Their odd playmate, Dill Harris, comes to stay with his
aunt next door each summer. And then there's Atticus, their
father, and their hero.
At first barely penetrating their world of treehouses and
elaborate reenactments of pulp novels are rumors of a black man
accused of raping a white woman. In 1930s Alabama, her accusation
all but proves his guilt. Yet lawyer Atticus questions the charge
and defends the accused man in a town steeped in prejudice.
Through the eyes of the children, as they try to understand the
reactions of the townspeople and make sense of the crumbling
world around them, the irrationality of racism is laid
