Product description

Product Description

Sideny Lumet's unparalleled trial drama starring Henry Fonda. 12 Angry Men, by Sideny Lumet (Network), may be the most radical big-screen courtroom drama in cinema history. A behind-closed-doors look at the American legal system as riveting as it is spare, the iconic adaptation of Reginald Rose’s teleplay stars Henry Fonda (Young Mr. Lincoln) as the initially dissenting foreman on a jury of white men ready to pass judgment on a Puerto Rican teenager charged with murdering his father. What results is a saga of epic proportions that plays out in real time over ninety minutes in one sweltering room. Lumet’s electrifying snapshot of 1950s America on the verge of change is one of the great feature-film debuts.

From Amazon.co.uk

Sidney Lumet's directorial debut Twelve Angry Men remains a tense, atmospheric (though slightly manipulative and stagey) courtroom thriller, in which the viewer never sees a trial and the only action is verbal. As he does in his later corruption commentaries such as Serpico or Q & A, Lumet focuses on the lonely one-man battles of a protagonist whose ethics alienate him from the rest of jaded society. As the film opens, the seemingly open-and-shut trial of a young Puerto Rican accused of murdering his father with a knife has just concluded and the 12-man jury retires to their microscopic, sweltering quarters to decide the verdict. When the votes are counted, 11 men rule guilty, while one--played by Henry Fonda, again typecast as another liberal, truth-seeking hero--doubts the obvious. Stressing the idea of "reasonable doubt", Fonda slowly chips away at the jury, who represent a microcosm of white, male society--exposing the prejudices and preconceptions that directly influence the other jurors' snap judgments. The tight script by Reginald Rose (based on his own teleplay) presents each juror vividly using detailed soliloquies, all which are expertly performed by the film's flawless cast. Still, it's Lumet's claustrophobic direction--all sweaty close-ups and cramped compositions within a one-room setting--that really transforms this contrived story into an explosive and compelling nail-biter. --Dave McCoy, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I love this film, its about twelve men who get pretty cheesed off with each other while serving as the jury in a murder case. And its all Henry Fondas fault. They were pretty much all convinced of the verdict till old mr Fonda casts doubts all over the place. I'll be honest, I've never been that keen on Henry Fonda, but he is excellent in this sweaty old black and white film. I say sweaty, because they're all sweating their moobs off all the way through it, due to a heatwave and their increased frustration. Every other film or tv drama that is based around the jury of a criminal court case is a direct rip off of this classic film, and none of them do it like this one.

Great film from start to finish, well worth my 5 star rating- never boring, with fine direction, and fine performances from Henry Fonda, Lee J. Cobb, Jack Klugman and the rest of the cast. One of my favorite films of Henry Fonda's. Courtroom drama lovers will love this, you won't be disappointed.
