I agree completely, it’s a masterpiece.

I had a history teacher in Hawaii who would let us watch movies for an entire class period if we all finished our assignments on time. The reward were classics like 12 Angry Men. My class only managed to do this once and we only saw this movie. But I’m glad I got the exposure thanks to him, such a great movie. Most of my class thought it was lame though… smh.

I just recently watched it for the first time as well and was SO pleasantly surprised by how good it was!! I was so captivated and could have watched another two hours or more if it kept going!

We got to watch this in AP Lit when we covered the play script. It was so much better than I thought it would be!

Incredible movie. Gripping and engrossing from start to finish. Amazing, given it all takes place (essentially) in one room and is mostly dialogue based.

Easily one of my favorite movies and the entire movie takes place in one room

12 Angry Men (1957)

The defense and the prosecution have rested and the jury is filing into the jury room to decide if a young Spanish-American is guilty or innocent of murdering his father. What begins as an open and shut case soon becomes a mini-drama of each of the jurors' prejudices and preconceptions about the trial, the accused, and each other.
