Hoot’s DVD for the Weekend – 12 Angry Men

12 Angry Men

Starring: Henry Fonda

Directed by: Sidney Lumet

This is a black and white film made in 1957 but don’t let that put you off. This is a powerful film about a jury.

The film starts at the end of a court case when the 12 men on the jury start their deliberation. They need all 12 to agree on the verdict to avoid a mistrial. 11 men agree the guy is guilty but one man believes he is innocent, can juror 8 convince the rest to change their minds.

This outstanding film brings together these 12 strangers with different backgrounds and experiences to produce great drama.
