The Lincoln Lawyer
The Lincoln Lawyer is a great Friday night film. It's fast-paced and has a lot of twists, but the plot is not very deep. Based on a Michael Connelly novel, the film centers around a defense lawyer and a man accused of assault. The plot weaves together past and present in a way that makes two hours fly by. I recommend this film to anyone who is interested in law and legal drama.
Despite its cliche ending and Oscar-winning performance by Marisa Tomei, The Lincoln Lawyer is still a great courtroom/trial movie. It manages to strike a good balance between comedy and situational drama. While the movie isn't exactly a comedy, it does have some funny moments. The film's tight script from John Romano and direction by Brad Furman made it a box office hit.
The film is a fine example of a courtroom/trial movie. It stars Matthew McConaughey as criminal defense attorney Mickey Haller, who works from the backseat of a mobile Lincoln Town Car.
A Few Good Men
A Few Good Men is a classic courtroom/trial movie starring Tom Cruise as Lt. Daniel Kaffee, who defends 2 Marines accused of murder. Their defense is based on the fact that they were acting under orders. This courtroom drama features brilliant performances and memorable lines, and stars Jack Nicholson, Kevin Bacon, and Demi Moore. The film is a must-see for fans of the genre!
The plot revolves around the discovery of a previously-concealed engineering report by Maggie Dawson. The engineer explains that there was an electrical fault in Meridian, but Michael Dawson burnt the report. When Jedidah learns of this, she accuses Maggie of destroying the report, which leads to a perjury charge. Ultimately, the two men are found guilty and sentenced to prison.
I've been watching courtroom/trial movies for years, and I'm a sucker for good stories. A Few Good Men is a great example of how courts can change the world. Sorkin's racially-charged novel was an excellent introduction to the courtroom/trial genre. Despite its historical accuracy, the film is still a must-see for anyone interested in a good courtroom drama.
"Legally Blonde" is a great film for women, especially if you're thinking about going to law school or are already in law school. The film is funny and realistic, and it gives us a glimpse of what it's like to be in law school. It follows Elle Woods, a bright and outspoken woman who is about to be a first-year law student, as she helps defend an innocent woman accused of murder. The movie stars Reese Witherspoon and Luke Wilson, and it's based on real events.
As far as plot goes, the movie has a lot of great courtroom/trial scenes. Elle, for instance, assumes that a gay man would notice her Prada shoes. She says this as a way of refuting the prosecution's narrative, and she outs Enrique during her testimony. I loved that this movie addressed workplace sexual harassment, and I still feel strongly about it.
Reese Witherspoon is the biggest selling point of Legally Blonde. She exudes a confidence, intelligence, and compassionate goodwill that makes her character even the dumbest blonde seem smart and charming. Although the film is not on its best form, Witherspoon is enough to make the movie worthwhile. That's why I highly recommend it.
