Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird remains one of America’s most cherished novels. Despite its great success, Lee remains an incredibly private woman who has shunned celebrity and has never published another book. This documentary explores Lee’s life with rare photos and interviews with her sister, Alice Finch Lee, as well as the turbulent southern history that inspired the novel. Oprah Winfrey, Tom Brokaw, and Rosanne Cash are among the famous readers who reflect on how the book changed their lives. (D. Mary McDonagh Murphy, 2010, 82 min., video)
