Samuel Edwards With all due respect, if you can't even read the entire description of the book here on Goodreads (which clearly states that it was made into a movie), then it is no wonder you need to cheat in your English class. I weep for the future.
Michelle I realize this question was posted a year ago, but it’s great question – and it deserves a thoughtful answer. First of all, yes - it was turned into a movie. My favorite version is the one starring Gregory Peck as Atticus. Sometimes it’s easy to forget that there are people outside of the US, and even regions of the US that aren’t familiar with this classic novel – or the many film adaptations. Additionally, southern culture, history, and dialect can take some getting used to – especially if you’re experiencing it for the first time. By all means, use the film to help bridge that gap.

Often, film adaptations can be a wonderful tool to help students move to a higher level of literary skill. In my experience, there is a great deal to be gained by combining books and film. I had an opportunity to work with a high school senior struggling to understand “Pride and Prejudice”. He was ready to throw the book through the nearest window until I had him watch the six hour BBC film version. Watching the film was paramount to his eventual reading success. He explained that when he first started reading the book, it was like reading a foreign language, and because of that, he could never grasp the plot – let alone keep all the Bennet women straight. However, after he watched the film, he understood the plot and could visualize the characters. He not only finished the book, but he had wonderful insights in his essay critique.

Another benefit of film is to compare and contrast. I love having students describe how they saw the characters in their mind versus how the actor portrayed the character. I encourage them to find the missing parts. If the film missed sections of the book, how did they feel about it? What would they have done differently? Just so you know, most young people I’ve surveyed are still indignant that Peeves the Poltergeist was left out of the Harry Potter films.

We want youth to think critically about literature, and we shouldn’t limit the ways that develop those skills. If a student is a strong auditory processor, they should listen to recorded books. Dyslexic students fall into this category - they should absolutely be listening to books AND watching films. It’s not cheating. It’s smart. If you want a student to become a wonderful literary thinker, give them every tool and avenue into the world of stories – including films, plays, and music. We cheat our youth if we do anything less.
Heather Prescott Or you could read the book - far fetched idea I know
Oksana It has been 11 months since you posted your question. However, if you still have not read the book, I highly recommend the audio version of the book read by Sissy Spacek. I know quite a few kids who have reading disabilities. We usually listen to the books on tape with them.
Joseph What did the Google search "To Kill A Mockingbird Movie" reveal?
Bookworm54 Yes, and I don't think anyone could possibly be a better Atticus than Gregory Peck!!!
Vineeta Koparde Yes it a movie and is as good as the book for a change. Worth watching
Teddy Bear Books It's a movie, but I think you or anyone else wondering the same thing will find more pleasure in reading this book. It's a classic, but not one written in complicated writing and with a boring, slow story. I loved this book so much, and hope to read it at least one time each year.
Jim G Scout would have totally skipped reading the book and would have gone to the summary and Cliff Notes.
๓คץค- Yes, this is a movie now. iTs a super great movie and is directed by Robert Mulligan. Its got some awesome actors like Gregory Peck and was made in 1962. The movie is available on amazon. Its really good. :)
Hope this helped!
Mike Horne I have to ask--did you only watch Lord of the Rings and not read the book? Books are always better!! Even comic books are better than movies. I teach a Film Studies class at high school. And I love films. But books are better.

That being said what a great movie this is. Horton Foote wrote the screenplay (He also wrote A Trip to Bountiful). Movies are sometimes better than plays.
Greg You could search for it on Netflix or wiki (but don't trust wiki even if they say it's a movie).
Ara yes it was a movie. you could probably find it at the library
Sabina I don't understand the 'spiteful' answers to this. He/she is not saying they want to watch the movie as a shortcut/instead of reading the book...
The movie must be worth watching, starring Gregory Peck, you can easily find it on Amazon. For some reason, while reading the descriptions of Atticus, I pictured exactly that actor.. I don't think I've seen the movie, as I would remember it! Then it must be that Peck was just the perfect choice. I'm going to watch the movie too!
James Bellows Seriously!! Read the book
Ed Boyle A great movie, won the Academy Awards for Best Actor, Best Art Direction, and Best Writing Adaptation. The book, my favorite of all time, and the movie, also one of my favorites, are well worth the time. Oh, there are strategic differences between the two so if your question is related to enjoying both art form you will appreciate my comment. If not you may have a problem explaining the "F" on your paper.
Sarah You should read the book but there was a movie adaption made in 1962 with Gregory Peck.
Jennifer Terry There are a lot of things that the movie left out.
Tessa in Mid-Michigan The movie leaves out the funniest chapter--one of the funniest episodes I have ever read. Not to be missed.
Via This was posted 3 years ago, but, (you being a high-schooler and all), should know that YOU NEVER WATCH A MOVIE BEFORE A BOOK.
Duh!
Bob Marshall The Black and White film (starring Gregory Peck as Atticus) cameout very soon after the book, I saw it on television about 15 years ago.
There was also a stage version which toured the UK several years ago (I saw it in Bradford, my elder brother saw it in Richmond, London, and my younger brother saw it it in York).
It is worth reading the book and then periodically re-reading it.
Readman I have heard from some sources in the industry that there was a film in development. It was set to release in spring this year, however Marvel Studios secretly bought the entire project and cancelled it on the spot as to not interfere with the release of Avengers: Infinity War. The plot of the two films would have been too similar and with the Mockingbird being the better antagonist, it would have surely overtaken all sales.
maya ;) There is a movie but the book is amazing and has many important lessons. I would have read it even if it wasn't required!
Emily Zell Yes it is a movie, and while I do like the movie, I must say To Kill A Mockingbird is my favorite book of all time. Please read it. You will not regret it.
Henry Lunz I'd actually read that book
Gavin Abdollahi Yeah, it has a movie. Really old though.
Janelle Yes it was turned into a movie. It is an oldie. The director's name is Robert Mulligan.
Sienna acording to my english teacher, the movie is only lightly based upon the book.
Jon Marble Sr go to Turner Classic Movies. Channel 245 in the Clinton Ma area.
