Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Forget it if you're hoping for some of the pleasures found in Sidney Lumet's 1957 film -- the gradual unraveling of a crime, the heroics of a single juror who persuades his fellow citizens to listen to reason.
Fresh: The film transforms Rose's play into a ballet of sorts. The story is as much about movement as it is about words.
Fresh: A powerful new film inspired by a powerful older one.
Fresh: What keeps the film vital is the acting.
