Super Lawyers
William C. Altreuter

To The Social Network last night, not a lawyer movie, but worth mentioning in this context because lawyers provide the framing device- a big portion of the story is related in flashback as the characters are questioned in depositions. The deposition scenes are closer to being accurate than that sort of thing usually is, particularly when people get exasperated, but the lawyers are just suits for the most part. The movie "gets" the internet, but it doesn't really get the lawsuits. I can't say if it gets Harvard or not, but in a way that's the point-- being on the outside looking in is what it's all about, and that part is spot on.
