Henry Fonda leads an all-star cast in this Sidney Lumet-directed production about a jury deliberating on a murder trial, frustrated by a single member whose skeptical caution forces them to more carefully consider the evidence before jumping to a hasty verdict.
“[12 Angry Men is] a penetrating, sensitive and sometimes shocking dissection of the hearts and minds of men who obviously are something less than gods. It makes for taut, absorbing and compelling drama that reaches far beyond the close confines of its jury room setting.”– A.H. Weiler, New York Times
