“Twelve Angry Men” was a critically acclaimed teleplay which aired in 1954 and then adapted into a cinematic masterpiece in 1957 starring Henry Fonda. It is a blistering character study and an examination of the American melting pot and the judicial system that keeps it in check. A jury deliberates to decide the life-or-death fate of a young defendant. While the deliberations begin with the intentions to stay on point with just the evidence, soon the arguments become personal. Each juror reveals his own character as the various testimonies are re-examined, the murder is re-enacted, and a new murder threat is born. Tempers get short, arguments grow heated, and the jurors become twelve angry men.
