Review quote

"Coppola on criminal law? Streep on Libel? Capra on Constitutional Law? Denvir argues that ... popular films both reflect and shape our received myths about our most cherished legal institutions... Sit down with a box of popcorn, some Junior Mints, and Legal Reelism to find out what the Duke has to teach us about law and order in America." -- Harvard Law Review
