"Let's Film All The Lawyers"– Hawaii’s Second Law Film Festival

"Let's Film All The Lawyers" - Our Second Law Film Festival


by Robert Thomas, InverseCondemnation.com September 3, 2013

We had such a blast last year putting on a film festival highlighting some of our favorite legal movies, we decided to do it again.

From Saturday, September 14 through Friday, September 20, 2013, we are again teaming up with the Honolulu Museum of Arts' Doris Duke Theatre to sponsor screenings of three law-related films:

  • Hannah Arendt - The Hawaii premiere of a critically-acclaimed film about the controversial New Yorker reporting of the war crimes trial of Adolf Eichmann.
  • 12 Angry Men - The #2 film on the ABA Journal listing of the favorite law films, this classic takes you into a world where most attorneys will never go: a jury room. With an instantly-recognizable cast of stars led by Henry Fonda.
  • My Cousin Vinny - A new classic, #3 on the ABA Journal's list and a subtle comedic take on To Kill a Mockingbird, this fish-out-of-water tale surprises for its legal accuracy. With Joe Pesci as Vinnie Gambino, an inexperienced New York lawyer defending two youths accused of murder in a small southern town.

For more information, download the screening schedule postcard, or visit Law in Film, our festival blog (with reviews, links to the films, and ticket purchase information). 

If you have plans to be in Honolulu that week, please be sure to join us for one or more of the films.
