Marvelous documentary. I read "To Kill a Mockingbird" and saw the film when it was released in theaters. I was a teenager and it made a profound and lasting impression!! This film includes interviews with several modern writers ( some of my favorites ) who were influenced by the book. Highly recommend!! Kristi & Abby Tabby

this doc discusses how many years it took editors and Harper Lee to produce Mockingbird, and then says that the earlier written Watchman was published with little editing, which seems to be a major complaint against it.

in this doc Watchman is praised. I'd already taken it off my reading list because of reviews, but may rethink that decision.

this is a good doc about Harper Lee.
