12 Angry Men
Every man put on trial is considered innocent until proven guilty.In 12 Angry Men this theory can almost be considered false to the jurors involved in this murder case. But one man can be creditedwith sticking to the innocent until proven guilty theory that mostlikely saved a man’s life. This juror must show 11 other jurors thathe can prove with enough valid evidence that this boy is bewrongfully accused of killing his father.
