http://www.empireonline.com/100-greatest-movie-characters/default.asp?c=70

“You never really understand a person until you see things from his point of view, until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.”

Atticus Finch

Played By: Gregory Peck

Film: To Kill A Mockingbird

Empire Magazine lists Atticus Finch as number 70 on their list of the greatest movie characters. Here’s why:

Why He’s On The List: A strong contender for the most noble character ever, Atticus Finch remains Peck’s finest performance and certainly his most beloved. Finch, a lawyer and widowed father of two, has stood as a model for tolerance, justice and integrity since Harper Lee’s novel was first published, and Peck harnessed the power of the role with timeless success.

Finest Hour: Facing a lynch mob in defence of Tom Robinson, the black man accused of raping a white woman in America’s south.
