💜💙 Anatomy of a Murder (1959)

(Not the murder, but the social issue of rape being admitted into testimony and the ethics of lawyers).

💙 Judgement at Nuremberg (1961)

(Genocide is the big issue, but the social issue is one of racism and bigotry).

💚💛 A Few Good Men (1992)

(Again, not the murder. But the social idea of cover ups and honorable morals).

ADAM'S RIB -- a sneaky way to talk about gender inequality, and how people let men get away with everything but condemn women immediately. Plus the essential question at the heart of the story-- should the unwritten law apply to women... or apply to nobody? :)

Disney's ATLANTIS also has a made-up Atlantian language

THE DARK CRYSTAL has some made-up languages in both the movie and the recent series
