Quiet and watching

You get to spend a day inside your favorite movie. Tell us which one it is — and what happens to you while you’re there.
I would become a little girl and I would join Scout, Jem and Dill the day of the trial against Tom Robinson. I would sneak with them into the balcony of the Court House of Maycomb, Alabama, with the black people, to see how Atticus Finch defends him. I would be quiet and watching silently how the trial develops. I’d wait with them to hear the verdict and after the deception when the jury declares Robinson guilty I would stand up with all the other black people when Atticus Finch leaves the Court Room. Yes, my favourite movie is To Kill a Mockingbird. I think it’s perfect as it is. A new character adding something to the plot would ruin it. So I would only watch what happen. It would be great to share with the Finch kids the secret of the hole in the tree and the gifts of the mysterious neighbour. I’d be scared to death when they go to protect their father against the lynchers. Terrified when the drunk abuser attacks them and the strange neighbor saves them.

Maybe will be better to choose another movie to enter and play a part. Some thriller would be great to live great adventures and share cast with actors I like.

Fourth Wall.
