Storyline

Fact-based story about the sexual harassment suit filed by Anita Hill during the appointment trials of Clarence Thomas for the Supreme Court during the George Bush presidential administration. The film gives both parties a fairly even presentation and does not try to assess blame. It does, however, show a lot of background political maneuvering that took place, particularly on the part of Kenneth Duberstein, an administrative spin doctor.

Trivia

In 1998 Rupert Murdoch ordered Fox Television to abandon its planned production of "Strange Justice," a drama based on the book of that title by the New York Times Jill Abramson and the New Yorker's Jane Mayer about the confirmation of conservative Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. (It was subsequently produced and shown by Showtime.) According to a New York Times report, Murdoch told an associate that Thomas was a friend of his and that he had been railroaded during his confirmation hearing. See more »

Very Good
2 August 2000 | by (La Follette, TN) – See all my reviews

I barely remember the events of Anita Hill and Clarence Thomas portrayed in the movie Strange Justice, but now I saw the events unfold infront of me, I began to understand what happened when I just entered Kindergarten. Mandy Patinkin, being the best actor IMHO, does an emmy calibre performance of Kennith Duberstien, the lobbiest for Clarence Thomas. This is a very worthy movie for family with older kids, but beware, it goes into detail on everything, so this isn't suitable for young kids.(Besides, they'd probably go to sleep during this movie). And I have another gripe. Mandy Patinkin didn't show off is vocal talents in this movie.
