What major characters, elements of its setting and plot emerge directly from real experiences in her childhood? Harper Lee grew up much like Scout did in the film of To Kill a Mockingbird, she was a lawyers daughter, and would always get into things that she wasn't supposed to. Her childhood influenced her writing of her novel. She not only wanted to make a statement about the 1930's, but she also wanted to share her childhood, and how she grew up. The major characters mostly expressed her, her family, and close friends from her childhood. Setting was a major priority for the movie, she wanted it to be filmed in her hometown in Alabama.
