To Kill A Mockingbird
It is my favorite book, and in the top 5 of my favorite movies. I think the movie is a perfect film. Everything is perfect: the cast, the directing, the screenplay, the cinematography, the music. And the book takes you even deeper into Scout's and Jem's lives. I have the same reaction when finishing both the movie and book -- I want to stay. I want to find out what happened the next day and the day after that. The only bad thing about great books and films is at the end they push you out.
