    Wedgwood Meaningful Movies presents: Advise and Dissent: Where the Supreme Court and Politics Collide

    Advise & Dissent: Where the Supreme Court and Politics Collide (86 min, David Van Taylor, 2012) “Government’s least-understood “Third Branch” has a huge impact on our lives- from abortion to affirmative action, education to the environment, privacy to police action. So we must put our faith in the ideal chiseled on its facade: “Equal Justice Under Law.” But in recent years the way we select Supreme Court justices has become dangerously politicized, threatening judicial impartiality. ADVISE & DISSENT is the first documentary to go behind the lines and into the trenches of the judicial confirmation wars. … The award-winning film weaves “you-are-there” scenes into an unexpectedly suspenseful narrative. It inexorably reveals how honesty has succumbed to strategy, how politics have come to trump principle, and how partisanship is overwhelming judicial independence.” (ref: www.snagfilms.com)
