Zoot Suit (1981): Realism, Romance and the Anti-Musical– Film as Social Justice
Book: Screening Justice-The Cinema of Law: Significant Films of Law, Order And Social Justice
Screening Justice is designed to tell the complex story of law through an exploration of forty films focusing upon courtroom dramas, social issues and questions of justice. These motion pictures are evaluated by distinguished scholars who, using a range of narrative styles, compare the law on the screen and the law in action. The work serves as a guide to understanding law, the rhetoric of law and images of justice. The book will introduce readers to new films as well as help create new perspectives on familiar classic movies.
