12 Angry Men

(1957)

Life is in their hands. Death is on their minds.

Henry Fonda stars in Sidney Lumet’s Oscar-nominated court case classic about a seemingly cut-and-dry murder case: eleven jurors believe the teen is guilty, one juror does not. Set entirely within the jury room, Juror #8 (Fonda) feels that there might be room for reasonable doubt despite the overwhelming evidence.

This is filmmaking legend Lumet's first feature film. The story is based on a 1954 teleplay written by Reginald Rose, which was turned into a stageplay the following year.Hide
