You Can't Get More Upset Than 12 Angry Men

When People think of a court case, they usually don't think of a film starring Henry Fonda. Well, it's true, no matter how much people want to admit it.

The film 12 Angry Men tells the story of twelve jurors who have to decide the fate of a young man who is on trial for murder.

As the movie starts, we see the judge in the courtroom send the twelve men into the deliberation room, to decide the young mans fate.

When all twelve men are in the deliberation room, we find out that 11 of the 12 men find the defendant guilty. The only juror who finds him not guilty is Fonda's character.

As the movie goes along, he tries to convince each of the other 11 jurors why the young man is not guilty. At first most of the jurors don't believe what he says. The whole time, Fonda's character has trouble with one juror until the end of the film. Of course you find out, but I'm not going to tell you what happens.

This movies teaches everyone a lesson, and so does the all-star cast, which includes, Fonda, Lee J. Cob, Ed Begely, Sr., Jack Klugman, E.G. Marshall, and Martin Balsam.

Go rent it and see it!
