The Best Coming-of-Age Movies of All Time

3. To Kill A Mockingbird (1962)

Director: Robert Mulligan
Stars: Gregory Peck, Mary Badham, Phillip Alford, Robert Duvall and Brock Peters

To Kill a Mockingbird remains one of the greatest novel-to-film adaptations of all time. Thanks to its stars, the amazing Gregory Peck and the adorable Mary Badham, Harper Lee's story, loosely based on her own childhood with her neighborhood friend, Truman Capote, comes to life. The movie, just like the book, has the perfect combination of a coming-of-age story and court room drama, as the threads of the story eventually intersect in the character of Tom Robinson, a black man on trial for the raping a white womanTA
