A young man is accused of killing his father; the evidence indicates his guilt. On a sweaty summer day in a New York jury room, eleven jury members vote guilty. But Juror #8 (Henry Fonda) has his doubts about this supposedly airtight case. As he shares his ideas, the meaning of the case and the integrity of the jury system come under close scrutiny. This tense 1956 drama, directed by Sidney Lumet, also stars E.G. Marshall, Jack Warden, Martin Balsam, and Jack Klugman.
