To Kill a Mockingbird

To Kill a Mockingbird is a classic novel turned film about racism and justice in a fictional town of Alabama in the 1930s. The film follows a family of two young children, Scout and Jem, and their father, Atticus. The father is a lawyer in the town and is chosen to represent a black man who is accused of raping a white girl. Atticus and the children are harassed for their father serving this black man, and the children are eventually even attacked. Even with the father’s efforts to prove his client’s innocence, he is found guilty and ultimately killed by a deputy who claims he was trying to escape during transport. This story and film were ahead of their time as they address major social issues of racism and the justice system that are still prevalent today.

While you are sipping this delicious drink, we recommend a beautiful little movie called by the same name. Somewhere in Time is a 1980 American romantic science fiction drama film directed by Jeannot Szwarc. The film stars Christopher Reeve, Jane Seymour, and Christopher Plummer.

Reeve plays Richard Collier, a playwright who becomes obsessed with a photograph of a young woman at the Grand Hotel. Through self-hypnosis, he travels back in time to the year 1912 to find love with actress Elise McKenna (portrayed by Seymour). However, this relationship may not last as long as the two of them think; Elise’s manager, William Fawcett Robinson (portrayed by Plummer), fears that romance will derail her career and resolves to stop him.
