— The USA Network is airing the film tomorrow, Saturday 8pm with a special introduction from President Obama.
Murphy’s film looks at how Lee’s classic American novel broke ground when it was first published and unearths a rare radio interview with the now-reclusive author. In the interview, Lee talks about the success of her book.
“My reaction to it, was not one of surprise,” she said, “It was of sheer numbness… of being hit over the head and knocked out cold.'”
