We all have characters we love. Let’s spotlight these fantastic creations! Whether you want to be friends with them or you have a full-blown crush on them, you know you love them and want everyone else to love them too!
I was watching this movie with a friend recently, in which it was brought up how attractive Atticus Finch is, and not just as Gregory Peck. First, he is a single working dad who still finds time to teach his youngest, headstrong daughter Scout morels of life, treating her like an adult in such matters and hope to tame her “wild ways”. Secondly, he is one of the best shooters in the county but chooses not to brag about this accomplishment, feeling that it may not want to be the reflection he wants to bestow upon his children Jem and Scout, and that there are more admirable qualities than being a good shots man. Thirdly, and this plays a major part of the novel, is his belief in Tom Robinson and his innocence in the crime of rape that has been committed, with Atticus never stopping to fight for what he believes in. Another example of this is of Atticus’s strong opinion that there is nothing wrong with Boo Radley and that his children should leave him alone in peace. I find this last statement extremely hot, as I love anyone who is willing to look past a persons disadvantages and see them for the good person that they are. I shall end with one of my favorite quotes “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view-until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.”
