Alice, in the book, doesn’t have a childlike exuberance. In the movie, she does bring this exuberance. Basically, Alice is energetic in the movie but not in the book. Characters were, still are, and will continue to be the most important part of movies, but sometimes producers change them. As a wrap, most of the time it’s better to read the book than watching the movie.
The father of Tom Robinson's children is introduced to the viewers, but in actual sense his roles isn’t included in the book since they’re only mentioned briefly. Another important difference arises from the roles played by the characters, such as the portrayal of the main character; the book portrays Scout as the main character while the film seems to depict Atticus as the main character. This can be attributed to the fact that much of the story revolves around Atticus in the film. Another important character in the book who doesn’t appear in the film is Dolphus Raymond. He played a vital role in the development of racial injustice theme, which is another important theme in the
Because she is not able to enjoy the benefits of being a citizen, she seeks equality through spirituality, but Mrs. Bellmont endeavors to strip Frado of that right as well. For instance, while at a church meeting, Frado discovers that her status as a mulatto cannot prevent her entry into Heaven, a place where whites and blacks are treated equally; however, Mrs. Bellmont attempts to prevent Frado’s religious devotion, further exemplifying Frado’s position as both a “free black” and a slave. Frado’s spirituality is representative of her life as both a citizen and as a social outcast because she has a right to worship, but that right is nearly taken away from her. Frado receives confirmation of her ability to reach Heaven when a pastor says, “‘Come to Christ...all, young or old, white or black, bond or free, come all to Christ…’” (Wilson 85). Frado tastes the freedom that accompanies citizenship when she realizes that she, like all other people, has the chance to enter Heaven.

To begin with, Mrs Dubose addresses to Scout and her family about how Atticus is disgracing his race and his color by defending Tom Robinson on the alleged rape case. Mrs Dubose says, “Your father’s no better than the ni**ers and trash he works for” (135). Atticus views Maycomb as an injustice town because during this time period black people were seen as a lower class. Atticus is mark as an overall victim because in the trial the county is shocked that Atticus is
A Speck of Light In the Darkness Love, racism, and gender-inequality are all themes used in the award-winning book, To Kill A Mockingbird, but how are they shown throughout? Essentially, Jem and Scout’s father Atticus Finch is set to defend a black man accused of raping a white woman. Throughout this time, Scout learns about what her tiny town of Maycomb truly is and what she must become. Right after a near-death experience, Scout finally understands that to harm an innocent man is the same as killing a mockingbird, which never does anything wrong. Yet, throughout the movie, directed by Robert Mulligan, there were many changes to story that heavily affected other dominant themes expressed by their corresponding key events.
In essence, the movie version was not as accurate a depiction of the time period because it lacked the strength of the novella when comparing the setting, mood, and tone. First of all, the movie is set in San Francisco and Bodega Bay, California. Through information relayed in the movie the bird attacks primarily are contained to Bodega Bay and the surrounding area. The audience knows this to be true because that is what the radio news station states when Mitch checks for information on the car radio towards the end of the movie. Thus, this particular component is ineffective because the attacks are too localized.

The trailer shows some big events of the book, but nothing that would be crucial of the movie’s going to be good or bad. The movie has lot of emotion. More than it’s expected after the book. Jeanette Walls has written it in a formal way, no feelings about the past, or the things what happened with her. While reading the book, the things happens, we expect that and you go to the next one, but in the film the thing hit us on the face.
Atticus said to Jem one day, ‘I’d rather you shot at tin cans in the back yard, but I know you’ll go after birds. Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit ‘em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.’ That was the only time I ever heard Atticus say it was a sin to do something, and I asked Miss Maudie about it. ‘Your father’s right,’ she said. ‘Mockingbirds don’t do one thing but make music for us to enjoy. They don’t eat up people’s gardens, they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us.
