Directed by Sidney Lumet

Starring Henry Fonda and Lee J. Cobb

(1957) Open and shut case, right? But Juror #8 Henry Fonda just isn’t convinced, in the ultimate jury room drama. Adapting from a TV play, Lumet eschewed “opening out” while making the stifling jury room progressively even more claustrophobic via lighting and lens changes. Golden Bear Berlin Film Festival, Oscar nominations for Screenplay, Film, and Director. 35mm. Approx. 95 min.

Reviews

“Generates more suspense than most thrillers. Lumet’s direction is so sure-fire that the movie has the crackle of a hit.”
– Pauline Kael

“Lumet shows himself a director of more than ordinary gifts… We must take this director seriously.”
– François Truffaut
