More female lawyers in movies, please!

There’s a list of comments responding to a post on WSJ.com about favourite lawyers in films.  Lots of men referenced but only one woman was mentioned: “Reese Witherspoon in that Harvard movie.”  I liked “Legally Blonde” (well, the first one, not the sequel).  It shows that you can be feminine to the extreme and be a lawyer at the same time. 

I added a comment that my favourite is Katharine Hepburn in Adam’s Rib.  I can’t really think of very many movies with female lawyers playing strong leads.
