Note: The following text may contain spoilers

TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD is a 1962 adaptation of the Harper Lee novel, telling the story of a racially charged trial as seen through the eyes of the defence lawyer's children.

Discrimination

There is occasional use of the term 'nigger' by bigoted and unsympathetic characters in a historical context. Racist behaviour is clearly not condoned by the work.

Threat and horror

A crowd threaten to lynch someone, but are deterred before violence is committed.

Sex

A man refers to a woman kissing and holding him.

There is a scene in which a young boy is attacked, but the violence is undetailed. There are undetailed references to rape and allusions to child abuse.
