Hollywood loves lawyers, as well as, judges, jurors, surprise witnesses, smoking guns and falsely accused heroes. Perhaps one of the reasons courtroom dramas are so reliable is that they follow a time-honored protocol. Whether they’re plaintiffs or defendants, we’re on the side of a plucky upstart who needs the help of a determined legal hand to fight injustice. Usually, it’s not just the characters being put on trial. It’s the establishment, the system, the country, the past, and the future. Yale film professor Marc Lapadula will be discussing and analyzing a broad lineup of the best and most compelling movie entries in this genre.
Fee: $59.00
