The commentary also situates the play in relation to the genre of courtroom drama, as a milestone in the development of televised drama, and as an engagement with questions of American individualism and democracy. Angry Men" του μεγάλου και τρανού Sidney Lumet και έπαθα την πλάκα μου, τόσο από το σενάριο και την όλη εξέλιξη της πλοκής, όσο και από τις ερμηνείες, τη σκηνοθεσία και τις διάφορες κοινωνιολογικές προεκτάσεις της υπόθεσης. La acción transcurre en una tarde calurosa de verano de 1957, en una corte de la ciudad de Nueva York y se inicia cuando un juez advierte a los doce jurados sobre su importante labor. With less than a hundred pages, it is a pretty short read, but the book raises so many important issues of justice in those pages - and it does so without any legal jargon.

Originally published on January 1, 1954, Twelve Angry Men has topics that look at our society and legal system through a magnifying glass. The accused had punched a loudmouth who had pulled a knife in a bar and, after being struck, fell and banged his head. I also had the pleasure of seeing the play performed live in London’s West End several years ago, with a wonderful cast. In 2003 at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the British producer/director Guy Masterson directed an all-comedian revival [6] at the Assembly Rooms, including Bill Bailey as Juror 4, Phil Nichol as Juror 10, Owen O'Neill as Juror 8, Stephen Frost as Juror 3, and Russell Hunter as Juror 9.He created and wrote for The Defenders in 1961, a weekly courtroom drama spun off from one of Rose's episodes of Studio One; The Defenders would go on to win two Emmy awards for dramatic writing. The 8th Juror points out that, if the woman was lying in bed, she wouldn’t have had her glasses on, making it unlikely she could’ve seen who killed the boy’s father. As of March 2023 [update], the film holds a 100% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes based on 61 reviews, with a weighted average of 9. It was nominated for Academy Awards in the categories of Best Director, Best Picture, and Best Writing of Adapted Screenplay. Angry Men is a 1957 American legal drama film directed by Sidney Lumet, adapted from a 1954 teleplay of the same name by Reginald Rose.

A blistering character study and an examination of the American melting pot and the judicial system that keeps it in check, Twelve Angry Men holds at its core a deeply patriotic faith in the U.The guilty voters were bullheadedly refusing to sway because they couldn't stop seeing the case in reverse: Guilty until PROVEN innocent. On the Norman Lear CBS sitcom All in the Family, Edith Bunker ( Jean Stapleton) is the lone juror who questioned the evidence against the defendant, despite the pressure from her bigoted socialite co-juror ( Doris Singleton) in the first-season episode, "Edith Has Jury Duty". The 1987 Hindi film Ek Ruka Hua Faisla ("a pending decision") and 2012 Kannada film Dashamukha ("ten faces") are Indian remakes of the film, with almost identical storylines. Together, this provides students with an edition that situates the play in its contemporary social and dramatic contexts, while encouraging reflection on its wider thematic implications. Lumet stated that his intention in using these techniques with cinematographer Boris Kaufman was to create a nearly palpable claustrophobia.
