It’s officially winter, the season of reflection, restoration, and, yes, relaxation. It’s no wonder that streaming services see an upswing at the close of each calendar year. Sure, Americans spend more time with family during this stretch – but Netflix, Disney+, and Apple TV are nuzzled in there, too.

Chart your progress with this poster. Learn more about each film here.

As we settle in, we’re embarking on a viewing project of our own – and you’re welcome to join us! The Constitution on Film is our compilation of 18 motion pictures with stories that directly or indirectly feature the rights, responsibilities, limits, and possibilities in our nation’s founding document.

Based on our popular Democracy’s Dozen: Movies for Constitution Day from 2020, it includes thrillers, thinkers, timeless classics, and recent blockbusters, all of which wrestle with enduring American themes.

HOLIDAY BONUS! Get our full-color 12-by-18-inch The Constitution on Film poster featuring each film to track your progress this winter. Then, by the time everything reawakens this spring, you’ll boast a unique understanding of our supreme law of the land. You can download the poster as a JPG or PDF. And here’s a guide to the list, as well as suggestions for further viewing.

Happy winter, and enjoy the shows!

Now … can someone please get the lights?
