Movies about speech and debate
Speech and Debate by Stephen KaramIve read this before, and Ill probably read this again - the changes that were made for the UK production were slight but great.

Working the house staff for this show was my first job in New York, and I sat in that theater probably 30-40 times, never once getting sick of it. It inspired me.
While reading this, I remember every line reading and can hear it in my head. This play brings back the best memories for me.
