12 Angry Men (1957)

A classic in the Criterion Collection, 12 Angry Men sit in a jury room reviewing the evidence in a murder trial.  In the first vote, 11 men say the defendant is guilty and one man isn’t sure so votes not guilty.

The movie progresses by reviewing the evidence and talking it out until they can finally agree on a verdict.

I saw this as a play in a neighborhood high school.  It is still quite good.

IMDB Score 8.9/10
Amazon Score 4.8/5
