  • Close Ups In The Film

    A Time To Kill A courtroom drama, full of conversation and debate, can achieve gripping effects and touch the heart of the audiences. Each and every character grabs a hold of the law and throttles it. Jake Brigance (Matthew McConaughey) helps Carl Lee Hailey (Samuel L. Jackson) to defend his accusation of murder towards two white guys who had raped and attempted to kill Carl's little daughter Stacey aged 10 at the beginning of the film. The difference of races has brought lots of arguments and f...

    A Review and Commentary On: A Time to Kill By John Grisham A Time to Kill written by John Grisham is a book that presents the high racial tensions in Canton Mississippi in the early 1990's.

  • End Of Jake's Speech For Carl Lee
    1,626 words
    The use of mis-en-scene in A Time to Kill was most objectively utilized in the scenery, costumes and especially the lighting. The narrative compiles a majority of dark scenes with a careful use of low-key illumination and a variety of shadows. These low-light settings draw the viewer to express feelings toward the characters and their actions. The extensive close-up camera shots of the character's faces reveal the emotions they are portraying, whether they are talking or making a statement throu...

    I want you to close your eyes and think for a moment. Picture in your mind a patch of land in the South that's off a dirt road. There are trees everywhere, but only 3 people and a yellow truck. Two of the people you are to picture are boys somewhere in their twenties. They are drunk rednecks. The third person is a little black (this is how they are referred to in the book, I do not mean to be politically incorrect or disrespectful to anyone) girl about 10 years of age. She's tied to tree's, spre...
  • Trial
    224 words
    The book I read for summer reading was A Time to Kill by John Grisham. In my thesis I will prove there is prejudice in the American judicial system. Without a fair trial, a ground stone for American democracy there is no justice. The story starts in a small southern town of Clanton, Mississippi in the 1960's; a black man Carl Lee Hailey awaits trial for murdering the two rednecks who viciously raped his 10-year-old daughter Tonya. A young, idealistic white lawyer takes up the father's defense, a...

A jury of twelve people had to decide if there ever was such a time. Does race have a role in murder, if a white person is tried for the same crime as a black person should the verdict be different for the white person. In the beginning, Tonya Hailey, daughter of Carl Lee Hailey, was raped by two? rednecks? who? was ten and small for...
