The book includes many other themes besides the glaring racial struggles portrayed in the film. While the film chooses to focus primarily on issues related to racism and the controversy of those stereotypes, the book addresses several other issues such as gender roles. In the book, Scout is being ushered into the gender role associated with a southern lady. She is very hesitant to assume this role and conform to what society expects of her as she grows up. Up to this point in her life, Scout has had very few female role models as her mother passed away and she spends most of her time with her brother, Jem.

However, film can accomplish things that novels can't, and vice versa. Likewise, film has limitations that a novel doesn't. By its nature, film is a visual medium, which makes a first-person story difficult to tell. To have Scout narrating throughout the film as she does in the book would prove distracting, so Scout as narrator is only presented to set the mood of a scene in the film. As a result, viewers don't get a strong sense of Scout's first-person narration as they do in the book; instead, they simply notice the childlike perspective portrayed in the story. The film uses music to help reinforce the child's point-of-view.
This story chronicles the life of young Scout and Jem Finch, and their father Atticus, as they go through the trials of living in a small Alabaman town. When this novel was to be turned into a movie, a director had to face all of the challenges of turning a novel into a film. It is difficult to turn a novel into a film, while making this film very similar to the novel. I believe my director did a good job of making my film as close as possible to the novel. The film and novel have many similarities, and some differences, but are both a saddening story of racial injustice in the s. There were many similarities between the film and the novel, To Kill a Mockingbird. One of the most obvious similarities is that the narrator is Scout as an older woman.
