What are your overall impressions of the movie / book? From what you know, does it accurately depict the tort system?

Pretend you are a reporter for your county’s local Bar Association. You’ve just watched or read “A Civil Action.” Do a critique of the movie or the book (the content, not the acting!). You are free to include what you want. Just make sure you answer the following questions:
1. What are your overall impressions of the movie / book? From what you know, does it accurately depict the tort system?2. What was it about? Remember, your audience is lawyers.-What tort(s) were involved? Which ones would you have sued for if you represented the families? Be sure to break down the elements and explain how you’d prove your case.-What damages did the families have?-If you were representing the company, what defenses would you have raised?-Was there any vicarious liability? By whom? Again, be specific. If the company could claim there was none, explain how they might argue that.3. Did you learn anything new and interesting from the book / movie? If so, what? Was there a point in the book or movie that was especially poignant to you?4. What were your impressions of some of the main characters and what they were trying to get from the case?5. Knowing this was based on a true story, does it affect your feelings about our tort system at all? If so, how?
