Late for the movies 1957

Has the jury reach a verdict?

12 different people assigned to judge a young man on trial for murder. All of them having to come to an agreement to let him live or to give him death. 12 Angry Men, a 1957 movie, brought up not only the question of the death penalty, but also the various personalities, biases, opinions of those people sitting on that jury brought to the courthouse. The evidence was there for some, and for others, not enough of it or it was shunned.

Our personalities play an important part in how we react to people. Our beliefs, opinions and biases defining who we are help us to define others. I really enjoyed this movie.

Have a lovely, sunflower day. 🙂
