To Kill A Mockingbird By Harper Lee: Movie Analysis

Satisfactory Essays
Another part of the "To Kill A Mockingbird" book that was not included in the movie was Miss Maudie's house burning down. This scene was important to the movie because it showed how important Boo was in the children's lives, although they did not realize it. In the book, during the fire, Boo came up behind Scout and Jem and put a blanket over Scout's shoulders, though she did not realize it, nor did she see Boo. This scene also shows the closeness of the community of Maycomb. While Miss Maudie's house was burning, there were community members fighting to save some of her possessions from the fire. In the movie, we never feel just how close the people of Maycomb county are, and it is because this scene was left out.
