I don't bleg often, but sometimes one hits a wall and tossing the issue out to the 'sphere is the only thing that helps reach an answer.
I'm looking for films dealing with any of the following: the relationship between the press (media/journalism, preferably newer media) and the courts/legal system/American jurisprudence, etc; the changing attitudes toward the trustworthiness of the press; blogging - are there any films about blogging, or blogging-by-analogy yet?; federal regulations on campaign finance reform and public views about funding candidates; any movie, no matter how low- or high-brow touching on issues of the internet, MSM, blogging, journalism, media, trust, truth, and some healthy dosages of legal theory (either explicit or which you could layer on top, college lit course style).
In the alternative: I had to watch Adam's Rib recently for my Film & The Law class (say it with me now, 3.5L . . . .). The film hits its emotional boiling point as husband-lawyer-prosecutor Adam accuses wife-lawyer-defense-attorney Amanda of breaking the marriage contract basically by humiliating him in court. Adam's Rib, a comedy, of course has a satisfying, happy resolution. But immediately I started digging the shadowy corners of my mind for a film I saw sometime ago in which the husband, always supportive of his non-traditionally successful wife (like she's an attorney or business woman, or somehow pants wearing, etc) hit is breaking point and basically reveals that he actually wants more of a demure, traditional, skirted woman. It doesn't end well, he can't hack it, and they go bust. Or something like that.
Does that ring any bells with anyone or am I making it up?
You have until Wednesday morning to help me. Go.
