Exit Lines: “To Kill a Mockingbird”

There’s been so much drama regarding Aaron Sorkin’s Broadway adaptation of Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird that the actual show may get lost in all the headlines. (There’s this, and this, and this.) Once you’ve gotten through all that hubbub, however, book your tickets to what’s become a bonafide theatrical event. It’s excellent. Mostly. Lee’s 1960 novel, the basis of the Oscar-winning 1962 film, needs no introduction. In all the best ways, it plays to Sorkin’s strengths: It’s a courtroom thr...

Can prosecutors dismiss jurors for agreeing with the O.J. Simpson verdict?

It has long been settled that prosecutors may not dismiss citizens from a jury because they are black. But can they dismiss them because they supported the verdict in the O.J. Simpson case? That’s a question the U.S. Supreme Court may soon take up after the California Supreme Court treated a prosecutor’s invocation of a juror’s views on the O.J. Simpson verdict as a “race-neutral” reason that justified the dismissal of a black juror.  If the rule forbidding race discrimination in the selection o...

Top 5 Alternative Romance Movies

They don’t necessarily have a “happy ending” and they weren’t based on Nicholas Sparks’s novels. These are the movies that simultaneously show the beauty and the ugliness of love. They show how love can inspire you, challenge you and leave you dancing, but they also show how love can leave you screaming into a pillow or crying in the shower. These ...
