Atticus Finch Rap Sheet
Name: Atticus Finch
From: "To Kill A Mockingbird"
Bracket Placement: Movie Heroes- 5th Seed
Background: Atticus Finch is a southern lawyer who puts just as much commitment into raising his children as he does doing his job. A single father in a southern town, Finch takes on the trial of a lifetime as he defends an African American who is wrongfully accused of the rape and beating of a young, white girl. While he knows that he may not win the case, he commits to it anyway, even going as far as sitting at night with a book, making sure no townspeople come around looking for his defendant. Finch is a perfect example of pursuing good in a world lost in ignorance.
