What an interesting character study!
Twelve men are looking at the evidence-- trying to come to a decision. Only one thinks the boy is innocent... or that he at least might be.
A fascinating look at group mentalities, individualism, and the indefinable "reasonable doubt".
So glad I saw Suey's (It's All About Books) review of Twelve Angry Men because I don't think I'd have ever picked it up otherwise!
Definitely recommended (and it's a super quick read).
