Plot Summary
In a remake of the 1950s classic, bias and group-think influence the deliberations of a dozen jury members. Initially, one of the jurors (Jack Lemmon) is the only roadblock between the panel and unanimous conviction of the Latino alleged murderer they've been called to judge. But the all-male jury's negotiations prove fluid, and as the hours pass, more and more of the dissenter's peers come over to his side. Before long, the trial of an oppressed youth becomes a meditation on social justice.

    My feeling is that there were two jurors who wanted the guy to fry,period! George C.Scott, played one angry juror who felt being taken advantaged of. The other juror, was african-american and didn't care to spend the day in that room.Lemmon uses logic, and he makes the other people really dwell on what is at stake;This young fellow would be their responsibility, and his life hung in their hands. Cheers and bravo to Lemmon,Olmos, and the late Scott for this gripping drama!
