Genre Movies VIII: Season of the Courtroom Drama

A “courtroom drama”, according to the AFI, is a film in which “a system of justice plays a critical role in the film’s narrative.”  Now, let’s be honest, this is a damned specific genre (as opposed to the ridiculously nebulous “fantasy” genre).  I actually had to do a little research to remind myself of the movies that I’ve seen that involve “a system of justice.”

So–believe it or not–these are my Top 10 Courtroom Dramas:

1. A Few Good Men

2. Primal Fear

3. To Kill a Mockingbird

4. Runaway Jury

5. 12 Angry Men

6. The Exorcism of Emily Rose

7. A Man for All Seasons

8. The Client

9. Inherit the Wind

10. JFK
