For more entertainment it would be no kidding to suggest&nbsp;<a alt="" href="https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1704573" name="" rel="nofollow" target="" title="Link httpswwwimdbcomtitlett1704573" type="" value="">Bernie</a>&nbsp;(2011), if only more legal procedures in this movie ;)<br alt="" name="" rel="" target="" title="" type="" value="" /><br alt="" name="" rel="" target="" title="" type="" value="" />I suggest to look closer to and deeper in&nbsp;<a alt="" href="https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0968264" name="" rel="nofollow" target="" title="Link httpswwwimdbcomtitlett0968264" type="" value="">The Conspirator</a>&nbsp;(2010). The case&nbsp;of Abraham Lincoln's assassination resulted in the death penalty for&nbsp;Mary Surratt ("female conspirator"), she was hanged to death. Later her son stood under legal procedure in the same case based on the same evidence, and he survived but was blamed more guilty than his dead mother. (It is one and the same case, but it would be really boring to show the whole son's part in the movie.) Finally, the death penalty of Mary Surratt was treated as baseless and&nbsp;excessive.&nbsp;It's a horrible mistake to consider the case had no effect! The Surratt precedent was the base for breakthrough in justice to its modern form as we know it (not only in USA). It helped to strengthen the presumption of innocence principle and further in some states to eliminate or restrict the death-penalty verdicts.<br alt="" name="" rel="" target="" title="" type="" value="" /><br alt="" name="" rel="" target="" title="" type="" value="" />One more suggestion is&nbsp;<a alt="" href="https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0977855" name="" rel="nofollow" target="" title="" type="" value="">Fair Game</a>&nbsp;(2010).<br alt="" name="" rel="" target="" title="" type="" value="" /><br alt="" name="" rel="" target="" title="" type="" value="" />I've tried to search for an opportunity to watch&nbsp;<a alt="" href="https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0098212" name="" rel="nofollow" target="" title="" type="" value="">Roe vs. Wade</a>, but no luck at this moment, can not help you with this.<br /><br />Taking your second list into account, I have no more suggestions - they are spread in the two lists,&nbsp;but for now I pepped out to categorize between all the anchors in the structure of both )))<br /><br />I've found a dozen of items to search for watching, thank you! 3
