The view of the how the US Legal System works can be colorful and monotonous, crisp and blurry, slow and fast-paced, and wide and narrow. It can be the prettiest picture to an aspiring law maker, or a scornful imagery to a victim of a crime.
Before entering the actual court room, detention cell, city hall, or even a police car, many people have already gotten oriented with how lawyers or the police work through television or movies. For binge watching or simply for the interest of the subject, here are some movies about law that you can take a peek.
Erin Brockovich (2000)
Julia Roberts came out and gave justice to the life story of environmental activist Erin Brockovich who was a paralegal who uncovered a grave truth about a company’s unethical practices of releasing contaminated water to communities. The movie showed how a single mom brought to justice a giant.
Bridge of Spies (2015)
If you want a recent movie, you can start with Steven Spielberg’s “Bridge of Spies,” a drama-thriller that showed how an American lawyer can mediate between countries during the Cold War. Tom Hank’s character, Attorney James B. Donovan, handled his cases without prejudice and under the levelled mind of an admirable lawyer.
Devil’s Advocate (1997)
Although completely fictional, the movie’s theme and resounding message still echoed with many lawyers in the country. It was a picture of ambition, pride, greed, and the demons inside a man when faced with tremendous power.
Runaway Jury (2003)
A famous legal thriller in the early 2000s, the movie based on John Grisham’s novel exhibited the power of the jury in a trial, not only as a group of random people in a court room.
