This 60s film was partly shot in Monroeville.\n View this post on Instagram [To Kill a Mockingbird 梅岡城故事/怪屋疑雲改編自同名小說，而該小說的作者Harper Lee剛在本月19日逝世。大師殞落，願您安息！] // To Kill a Mockingbird 梅岡城故事/怪屋疑雲 (1962) Director 導演: Robert Mulligan 勞勃·莫利根 // 這部有關種族歧視和弱勢社群的電影以女生Scout的角度出發，看律師爸爸Atticus為黑人Tom Ribinson的強姦罪辯護。即使欠缺充分證據證明被告有罪，而且證人的證供有很多矛盾的地方，但陪審團依然判被告有罪。電影的一條支線是有關神秘鄰居Boo，他被鎮上的人認為是怪人、有神經病，卻在重要關頭救了Scout和哥哥Jem。 // 電影中，Atticus向Jem分享自己少年時得到手槍，提到爸爸吩咐自己可以用槍射罐、射小鳥，但千叮萬囑不可以射殺知更鳥（mockingbird），因為這種鳥只有為人類帶來美妙嘅歌聲，並沒有做壞事、也沒有對人的生活帶來負面影響。片中的黑人Tom實際上是無辜的，卻因為膚色而被認定有罪，盲目地將他入罪是殺死了無辜的知更鳥（Tom）；鄰居Boo不擅長社交，最後因為救人而可能受注目，這樣的注意可能會摧毀他平靜的生活，幸得警長幫忙隱瞞，警長救了這隻知更鳥（Boo）。 // Atticus因為幫黑人辯護而成為不受小鎮歡迎的人，就好像Bridge of Spies 間諜橋/換諜者裏Tom Hanks湯姆·漢克斯飾演的Donovan因為為蘇聯間諜辯護而被指摘；黑人Tom明明無辜卻被認定有罪，就好像The Hunt 謊言的烙印/誣網裏Mads Mikkelsen 麥德斯·米科爾森飾演的幼稚園老師因為幼童空穴來風的指控而被認定性侵犯兒童。社會上太多偏見太多誤會，難道我們不能搞清楚事情真相才發表意見嗎？ // 作為文壇和影史上其中一部最重要嘅作品，故事中道出了黑白人種的不平等。電影由小說改編，小說於1960年面世，而電影就在1962年上映。在五十多年前，黑人在美國受歧視，算是家常便飯，。然而，半個世紀後的今天，黑奴已經解放超過150年，社會上依然有很多種族歧視的現象。人類是否就不能進步？年紀越大，見識和經歷越多，就會知道一個人的膚色其實就跟樣貌一樣，每個人生來就是不同，但大家都是人，應該有相同的社會地位、得到相同的待遇。不論是白人、黑人還是黃種人，也應該互相尊重、和平共處。 // 評分：🌝🌝🌝🌝🌝 // #littlecinemaahsin #ahsinfilmreview #ahsinfilmreviewdrama #ahsin微影評 #影評 #電影分享 #tokillamockingbird #tokillamockingbirdmovie #mockingbird #harperlee #robertmulligan #gregorypeck #johnmegna #frankoverton #brockpeters #collinwilcox #robertduvall #marybadham #phillipalford #梅岡城故事 A post shared by @ littlecinema.ahsin on Feb 22, 2016 at 6:15am PST\n\nWebsite\n\nFailure to Launch \nRating: 5.6/10 on IMDb\nWhy You Need To Watch It: Failure to Launch is a 2006 rom-com about a man in his 30s who's still living at home.
