MotW for Dec. 4th - 12 Angry Men

"Oh thank FSM", said some, "no subtitles this week!". Indeed, 12 Angry Men is our first English-language MotW. A classic B&W from 1957, 12 Angry Men "tells the story of a jury made up of 12 men as they deliberate the guilt or innocence of a defendant"*. This may sound dry, but be assured that this film is a tense, emotion-driven morality play examining the meaning of "reasonable doubt". Don't miss it!
