    Favorite Courtroom Drama Movie

    Courtroom Dramas are one of my favorite genre's. Here is the list of AFI's Top 10:

    AFI: 10 Top 10

    I have seen 6 of the top 10, but plan to watch all of them. The six I have seen are:

    To Kill A Mockingbird
    12 Angry Men
    Kramer vs. Kramer
    A Few Good Men
    Witness for the Prosecution
    Anatomy of a Murder

    I loved ALL of them with 12 Angry Men and Witness for the Prosecution being my favorites.

    What are your favorite Courtroom dramas? It can be any on the list or any other good ones that you have seen.

    Re: Favorite Courtroom Drama Movie

    It probably isn't top ten material, but I'll mention Primal Fear. Edward Norton is tremendous in that movie.

    Probably JFK, because it makes my tinfoil hat fit just that much better.

    Liar Liar and My Cousin Vinny were both good movies and have courtroom scenes. They aren't dramas, but I enjoyed them.

    It has courtroom scenes. To Kill a Mockingbird and Kramer vs. Kramer are on the list, but they are more than just about the story of the trial too.

    Everyone should see The Verdict. Great movie, and pertinent to our current situation where individuals are more and more limited access to civil justice.
