The fate of a young Hispanic boy on murder trial rests in the hands of 12 jurors, one of which tries to convince the others that there may be more to this case than can be seen on the surface. A captivating classic courtroom drama film from Sidney Lumet.
The director’s talent shines in his ability to create tension and interest. The film takes place mostly in a single setting, the jury room, yet creates a unique atmosphere with a thrilling pace. Perfectly captures the nature of human predisposition and the difficulty of reaching a consensus in a group of individuals.
A cast of outstanding talent which works wonderfully together and deservedly gives the film a status of one of the greatest achievements in cinema.
Multi-layered characters and storyline. Brilliant performances. Must-See!
Winner of the Golden Bear award at the Berlin International Film Festival, nominated for three Academy Awards.
