Fearful Symmetry | Chicago Reader

Fearful Symmetry

Charles Kiselyak's sensitive 1998 documentary explores the Harper Lee novel To Kill a Mockingbird and its 1962 movie adaptation, weaving together excerpts from the book, still photographs, and interviews with Gregory Peck, director Robert Mulligan, other members of the cast and crew, and residents of Monroeville, Alabama, the small town where Lee grew up. Included as supplementary material on the film's DVD release, the documentary presents a textured view of life in the deep south and how it has changed, and the black-and-white 35-millimeter print being screened captures some of the feel of Mulligan's film with its measured pace and brooding imagery. 90 min.
