This film is on my All Time Top 10 List. 12 Angry Men was directed by Sidney Lumet. It is a drama about a young boy on trial for the murder of his father as the jurors deciding his fate face their own prejudices and emotions. This is a brilliant film with a superb cast. You will be captivated! Henry Fonda and Lee. J. Cobb, are just two in this amazing group of actors. Joseph Sweeney is brilliant in his role. Take note, filmmakers, this film proves once again that one does not need elaborate sets to make an excellent film.
