12 Angry Men

In loving memory of Sidney Lumet this is my favourite movie from him. A great huis-clos setting, and a fantastic turn by Henry Fonda. When you sometimes despair about the Justice system, about Society in general, or your fellow human beings, this comes as a breath of fresh air and an ode to Reason.

Overview
The defense and the prosecution have rested and the jury is filing into the jury room to decide if a young Spanish-American is guilty or innocent of murdering his father. What begins as an open and shut case soon becomes a mini-drama of each of the jurors' prejudices and preconceptions about the trial, the accused, and each other.
