Critic Reviews for Hey, Boo: Harper Lee and 'To Kill a Mockingbird'
Between interviews about the merits and courage of the novel and clips from the 1962 film adaptation that earned Gregory Peck an Academy Award, Mary McDonagh Murphy's directorial debut offers up a few morsels of fresh material.

Hey, Boo is so appealing because it's obviously and undeniably a work of commitment and passion.
