12 Angry Men in Barrington


Join librarian and film enthusiast Doug Swiszcz for Fond of Fonda: A Movie Lecture Series Saluting Henry Fonda. On March 27, 12 Angry Men will be featured. Based on a play shown on television earlier in the decade, the 1957 film stars Fonda as the lone dissenting juror in the case of a young ethnic man who stands trial for murdering his father. The majority of the movie takes place within the sweltering confines of the jury room, where Fonda and his fellow jurors thrash out their divergent opinions about whether the defendant can be considered guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
