Twelve Angry Men

This movie was released in 1957 – yes, it’s black and white.
With 20 nominations, including  3 Oscars, this movie took home 12 wins.

The director named Sidney Lumet also directed Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express and the 1977 film Equus.

Twelve Angry Men refers to the 12 men who sit on a jury for a court case.
It revolves around one room where the 12 men sit and discuss whether or not they should send a 16 year old boy to the electric chair.

The turn of events and leading man, the Late and Great Henry Fonda, will keep you excited.
However, there are a few bits where the plot begins to drag and you feel the movie is getting a bit slow, but the wait’s worth it.
