In the movie, Scout was best portrayed the best because it showed how much she was like a boy. I believe this because she was always wearing overalls in the movie and was forced to wear a dress to school and she didn’t really like it. I didn’t think that Dill fit the characterizations presented in the book because he didn’t look as small as they made it sound in the book and I didn’t think that he would dress like it portrayed in the movie. I also didn’t think that Atticus was as old as it portrayed in the movie.
So far in the movie there have been a lot of good scenes, but one of them is my favorite. My favorite scene in the movie is when the mob of people surrounded Atticus because he was protecting Tom Robinson. The reason I like this scene so much is because Scout talked to Mr. Cunningham and she made the crowd of people go home and leave Tom Robinson alone.
I was a little disappointed with the movie because it would have been a very pivotal scene if they would have showed how Tom Robinson got shot. That scene was a complete change in plans for Atticus because now he is done with helping Tom Robinson out and he doesn’t have to go to the court house everyday now. I would have shown that he got shot because it is an important scene.
The book and the movie were almost the same, but some things were in different orders. A problem with having things in different orders is that it can be hard to follow. The book explained so much more than in the movie and the book was also easier to follow. Aunt Alexandra never came to take care of Jem and Scout in the movie and in the book, she wouldn’t go back home. Overall, I thought that the book was a lot better than the movie because it was easy for me to follow along and understand what happened in the book.
