In "A Walk to Remember," there a recent debate of wheater or not Mandy Moore's character is a consertive christian. For the answer, check out one scene in which her character is shown reading the book "To Kill a Mockingbird," and you'll get the answer. She's not consertive, she's just different.
Speaking of "To Kill a Mockingbird," the film is based on the novel by Harper Lee, which won the Pultzer Prize. That book has been in the news lately because certain people have been offend by the book. I saw the movie many years years and that film has stay with me.
Gregory Peck playa Attcus Finch, a lawyer who is assigned to defend an African-American man accused of murder. The film is a honest protrayal of the south during the 1930's. He is widowed with two children to support. The court scenes are powerful, with the African-American people being forced to sit the balcony to watch one of their own being tried for murder. Peck gave the performance of a lifetime as the lawyer who comes to the aid of the man accussed of murder, despite the color of his skin. He won the Oscar for best actor, and he deserve it. Robert Mullingan did a great job of directing this film. Horton Foote wrote the screenplay.
I urge you to see this film. This is more than a movie, this is a history lesson about the changing south.
