Storyboard Text

  • The film is set in Alabama depicting a time around the late 1920-1930s, a time of economic povertyand racial segregation known as the Great Depression. The protagonists areintroduced; Atticus Finch (a man of higher class who works as a lawyer), andhis two children Scout and Jem (two young adventurous children curious about the stories their town possesses.
  • Guilty!
  • Tom Robinson, a young African American male is accused of raping a white woman of the name Mayella Ewell. Lawyer Atticus Finch is asked to defend the man, an act that is extremely difficult in this period due to the racial discrimination and credibility of a dark skinned man. Atticus must overcome the challenges placed upon him by the racial discrimination of his client.
  • Jem and Scout take an interest in the mystery that is Boo Radley and his house. Atticus Finch undertakes a trial to defend an African American male who has been accused of rape. The children of Atticus, Jem and Scout take an interest in the case and find it hard to comprehend the possibility of the jury convicting Tom Robinson based on the story of Mayella Ewell. Jem and Scout deepen their understanding on prejudice. 
  • The moment in which the jury finds Tom Robinson guilty as it presents a time of panic and realism as the case is closed. The verdict forces Scout and Jem to confront the fact that the morals and values Atticus has taught them throughout their lives will not always reside well with the cruel harsh realities of life. Tom Robinson is shot dead -> story of his death is fabricated
  • Jem and Scout struggle to come to terms with the death of Tom Robinson. Mr Ewell begins to threaten Atticus and then attacks Jem and Scout as they are returning home. Boo Radley saves them by stabbing Bob Ewell. The sheriff decides to protect Boo by not presenting the story to the press and saving him from a trial. He states that Bob Ewell ‘fell on his knife’ and that he was at fault for his own death.
  • Jem and Scout come to a new realisation about the justice system and find a new sympathy for the neglected Boo Radley.
