Henry Fonda returns to our Classic Movie Nights series, and this time he's bringing 11 others, as Sidney Lumet's 1957 masterpiece, 12 Angry Men, explodes onto the screen. Make sure to arrive early at 7:30PM for a 30 min pre-screening lecture by screenwriter and researcher Theo Siegel!
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.
Celebrated as one of the greatest films ever made, 12 Angry Men explores prejudice and perspective with a fury both intimate and explosive.
