In this engaging documentary film, director/writer Mary Murphy explores
both the background to and impact of author Harper Lee's enormously
influential and well-loved 1960 novel, "To Kill a Mockingbird." Drawing
upon a host of resources including: interviews with residents of Lee's
hometown of Monroeville, Alabama and personal friends of the author's;
film footage of civil rights demonstrations in the U.S. south during
the early and mid-1960's; commentary by a host of celebrities (Oprah
Winfrey, Tom Brokaw, Rosanne Cash, Anna Quindlen, Scott Turow and many
others); still photographs; and scenes from the 1962 movie starring
Gregory Peck, Murphy weaves together a compelling portrait of the
gestation of a literary novel. "To Kill a Mockingbird" -- which won a
Pulitzer Prize -- is one of those rare books that manages both to look
back in time to small-town southern life in the 1930's and also forward
to the racial and social issues surrounding the civil rights struggles
of the 1960's. It has rightly become a touchstone of American
literature in the 50+ years since its publication. It is to filmmaker
Murphy's credit that -- while not scanting the civil rights' issues the
book antedates -- she keeps the major focus of this 2010 film upon the
book and its author. By so doing, she manages to augment the viewer's
sense of the book's impact; understatement possesses a quiet power that
overblown rhetoric cannot touch.
At 78 running minutes, "Hey, Boo: Harper Lee and 'To Kill a
Mockingbird'" is not a long film documentary, but it pulls the viewer
in and commands attention. It is delightfully funny in some places
(novelist Allan Gurganus' reminiscing about novelist Truman Capote -- a
childhood friend of Lee's -- comes to mind); horrifying in others, and
-- like the book it examines -- ultimately moving.
