Defamation (2012) - Todd Logan

Defamation is an old-fashioned courtroom drama. The premise is a civil suit: Ms. Wade, an African-American business owner, is suing Mr. Golden, a Jewish real estate developer, for defamation. What follows is a 75-minute riveting trial that "holds our prejudices and assumptions under a powerful lens, and does not let go except by way of an unsettling self-examination."
