Perhaps I have watched too many Law and Order reruns. I just discovered a British version on DVD at the library and they were almost as interesting, even without the wisecracking of Greevey, Cragen, and Logan.
Trials are fascinating, particularly those that move beyond assigning blame and address moral and ethical dilemmas in contemporary situations. I brainstormed a list of favourites, and these came immediately to mind…
Do read beyond the list, because I found other interesting things as well…
Law and Order
A Man for all Seasons
A Tale of Two Cities
Trial at Nuremburg
Inherit the Wind and recent documents about Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District
To Kill a Mockingbird
Snow Falling on Cedars
The Caine Mutiny
The Moon also Rises
The Apology of Socrates
The Gospel narratives
In Cold Blood
I “googled” the topic “movies about trials” and found two fabulous websites:
The first is devoted to what aspiring lawyers should know, from many aspects of contemporary life and culture… movies for the law student.
The second is from Business Insider… the ten greatest trial movies of all time. How could I have forgotted Twelve Angry Men?
Come back tomorrow for more intriguing information I found!
