Date(s) - 28/09/2018
7:00 pm - 10:00 pm


12 Angry Men is a 1957 American courtroom drama film adapted from a teleplay by Reginald Rose. Directed by Sidney Lumet, this film tells the story of a jury made up of 12 men as they deliberate the conviction or acquittal of a defendant on the basis of reasonable doubt, forcing the jurors to question their morals and values. In the United States, a verdict in most criminal trials by jury must be unanimous. The film is notable for its almost exclusive use of one set: out of 96 minutes of run time, only three minutes take place outside of the jury room.

In 2007, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry for being "culturally, historically and aesthetically significant.

Tense and moving it features a towering performance by Henry Fonda.
