12 Angry Men (1957)

Twelve jurors have to decide the fate of a young defendant charged with murdering his father. A classic black and white legal thriller and a rare one that focuses on post-trial jury deliberations. This movie is a must watch or rewatch with stellar performances from an A-list cast of acting legends, gorgeous cinematography, and a compelling story that weaves many important themes that are still relevant today.

The good:

  • Wonderful performances within a sweeping, captivating story.

  • A fantastic soundtrack and a beautiful score by Alan Silvestri.

  • A classic that stands the test of time.

The bad:

  • None.


  • ***** (out of five)
