Just watched 12 Angry Men (1957) last night. I was pleasantly surprised by this film. The movie, starring Henry Fonda, focuses strictly on the deliberations of a jury deciding the fate of a 18-year-old boy charged with murdering his father. In the beginning, all of the jurors except one are set in their convictions. Throughout the film, the jurors deliberate the case and discuss the facts, trying to work out the case to make the right decision.
Obviously you can tell I’m trying not to reveal the outcome so that if you watch it, the movie won’t be ruined for you. But watch it. It’s good. Lots of close up shots and decent dialogue.
