What exactly is law?" "Do societal traditions and prejudices alter the manner of enforcing legal boundaries?" "Are defined moral codes really at the base of our legal system?" These are only a few of dozens of such questions raised in this intriguing collection.

These are not film reviews or legal treatises but in-depth examinations of moral, ethical, and social issues as portrayed on the screen that are pertinent to our view of the legal system and culture at large. Denvir emphasizes that film can change one's view of the legal system by personalizing the issues via the storyline, ultimately proving that there are rarely pat responses to any situation.

Scores of thought-provoking ideas offer knowledgeable filmgoers, legal practitioners, educators, and interested lay readers endless points for discussion and debate
