This film took me by surprise. It's about 12 jurors struggling to reach a verdict in a murder case. Normally not my cup of tea but I was hooked immediately by the suspense, tension, and performances of this 1957 film. Based on the story by Reginald Rose and directed by Sidney Lumet. Starring Henry Fonda. I especially enjoyed the performance of Joseph Sweeney, who has a great, expressive face.
The film's theme - the importance of taking a closer examination and questioning beyond the surface facts while maintaining a balanced perspective - is applicable to so many areas of life.
