"You can't handle the truth!" For many moviegoers, Jack Nicholson's famous line in A Few Good Men is one of the most memorable courtroom scenes ever. But what other legal dramas from the silver screen stick in viewers minds? And why? 

North Carolina State film professor Marsha Gordon and North Carolina Museum of Art film curator Laura Boyes will talk with host Frank Stasio about legal scenes in the cinema on The State of Things on January 29.

But first, we want to hear from you. What is your favorite courtroom movie drama? 

Send us an email (sot@wunc.org) with your name, city and favorite movie scene. Tweet us at @state_of_things or use the hashtag #sotmovie. Your suggestion may be included in the show.
