While examining a brief clip of the movie film “To Kill A Mockingbird” I recognized that the film consists of several divergences and equivalences. Beforehand, this scene demonstrates a demented dog with rabies that was terrorising the neighborhood. Not to mention, the film should prosperly enhance details comparable to the novel. Furthermore, one imbalance that caught my eye while observing this scene is Calpurnia’s (families maid) role. In addition, one similarity that attracted me is Atticus’s actions.
