Director: Sidney Lumet. Cast: Henry Fonda, Martin Balsam, Lee J. Cobb, Jack Klugman, Jack Warden. 96 min. Unrated. Drama.
Now this is vintage Lumet. The genius of the script and direction is that from the very beginning, when you see eleven jurors of a homicide case voting guilty and one voting not guilty (for the simple reason of "Let's talk about it ..."), you know for a fact that by the end of the movie, the votes will drastically change. But the point is, how those votes change, and how Lumet performs his act as smooth, seamless and believable as you could imagine. The power of simple dialogue. A must see classic.
