Justice in Film - Legal Dramas: A Two Part Course with Marc Lapadula
Hollywood loves lawyers. And Hollywood loves judges, jurors, surprise witnesses, smoking guns, and falsely accused heroes, as well. 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, either. It’s the establishment, the system, the country, the past, and the future. No wonder there are so many memorable courtroom dramas.
Yale film professor Marc Lapadula will be discussing and analyzing a broad lineup of the best and most compelling movies released within the Legal Drama genre.
Lecture One: Screenings will include films such as:
Judgment At Nuremberg
Witness For The Prosecution
Inherit the Wind
12 Angry Men
Anatomy of a Murder
To Kill A Mockingbird
Justice For All
Lecture Two: Screenings will include films such as:
My Cousin Vinny
The Caine Mutiny
A Few Good Men
