Suspenseful. Powerful. Moving.

1950’s masculine society is compressed into this engaging, tightly spun drama about 11 jury members absolutely certain that a young ethnic kid is guilty, and the one juror (Fonda) that has a reasonable doubt. Integrity, mob mentality, racism, and prejudice are all examined as juror number 8 gradually brings the other men over to his side, and Sidney Lumet, directing his first film, paces the film superbly.
