Summary

Jury has to decide on a murder case but some of the jurors have their own agendas or are biased. Sounds like '12 Angry Men' but this is not a remake. It's a totally fresh take on the theme. Totally different case, for example. There is no question about the identity of the culprit, the jury has to decide between manslaughter and murder.

Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

The last time Kelly McGillis held us spellbound in a courtroom, she was representing Jodie Foster in The Accused. Here, in a variation on 12 Angry Men, she stars as a member of a jury trying to decide whether a chat-show hostess cold-bloodedly murdered her husband or responded in desperation to his persistent brutality. Focusing squarely on the conflicts between the characters, Sturla Gunnarsson (who made the much-admired Such a Long Journey) wisely plays down the thriller aspect of the story to concentrate on the issues of celebrity and justice that were thrown up by the OJ Simpson case.
