Mary McDonagh Murphy's documentary Hey, Boo: Harper Lee & To Kill a Mockingbird explores the history, context and impact of the Deep South-centered novel To Kill A Mockingbird -- one of the biggest bestsellers of all time -- and also offers an unprecedented look at the life of its reclusive writer Harper Lee, who stopped speaking to the press in 1964. Oprah Winfrey, Tom Brokaw, Anna Quindlen, Richard Russo, Jon Meacham and Andrew Young are among those interviewed for the film discussing the novel's impact on them. Now playing. West End Cinema, 2301 M St. NW. Call 202-419-FILM or visit westendcinema.com.
