12 Angry Men

synopsis


Heralded as one of the all-time great classics, "12 Angry Men" focuses on a jury's deliberations in a capital murder case. A 12-man jury is sent to begin deliberations in the first-degree murder trial of an 18-year-old Latino accused in the stabbing death of his father, where a guilty verdict means an automatic death sentence. The case appears to be open-and-shut: the defendant has a weak alibi, a knife he claimed to have lost is found at the murder scene and several witnesses either heard screaming, saw the killing or the boy fleeing the scene. Eleven of the jurors immediately vote guilty; only Juror No. 8 (Mr. Davis, played by Henry Fonda) casts a not guilty vote. As the deliberations unfold, the story quickly becomes a study of the jurors' complex personalities, preconceptions, backgrounds and interactions. That provides the backdrop to Mr. Davis' attempts to convince the other jurors that a "not guilty" verdict might be appropriate.

It's so great

I've been renting a bunch of old movies (the beauty of Kino) and this is the best so far. A great, intense, one room drama. I've got to get some more Henry Fonda films, he was fantastic (as was the whole ensemble).
