"Discuss" means: look at both sides of the argument but ultimately choose one to support more than the...VIEW DOCUMENT
12 Angry Men: Juror #8 is the Most Important JurorJuror #8 was the most important juror in the play Twelve Angry Men for a number of reasons. The first reason is that when all the other jurors voted guilty without even thinking about their decisions, Juror #8 suggested that they talk about it before jumping to conclusions. Even when some of the other jurors got mad and started yelling at him, he stayed calm and tried to work things out in a mature fashion. The second reason is that he...VIEW DOCUMENT

In the movie "Twelve angry men" an eighteen year old is charged with the murder of his father. At first, all the jurors believe that he is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, except for one, who believes that they owe the boy more than five minutes in deciding if he lives or not. The man who does not believe that the boy is guilty explains his views to the rest of the jurors and is ridiculed by the rest of the jurors. An old man later sees where he is going with his reasoning and when the next vote is done, he also votes innocent. The jurors continue to discuss the case and bring up some important facts in...VIEW DOCUMENT
On a hot summer day, twelve men do their civic duty and begin deliberations over a minority young man's future. The young man is on trial for killing his father. His alibi is that he went to the movies. However, a knife, similar to a knife that he bought, is found protruding from the victim. The witnesses included an old man who claims that he heard the boy say "I'm going to kill you" only seconds before he heard a thud, which he assumes was the father's body falling to the floor. This witness further claims that after he walked to the front door of his apartment and saw the boy running down the staircase. Another witness, a woman, comes forward claiming that by looking...VIEW DOCUMENT
Play by Reginald Rose
Performed at the Scott Theatre, 7th March 2004
A Masterson/Assembly Theatre Production
Directed by Guy Masterson
Director Guy Masterson's adaptation of Reginald Rose's Pulitzer Prize-winning play, 12 Angry Men, is a surprisingly engaging and high-quality production considering the cast's inexperience; the issues it raises remain topical fifty years after it was written. The play explores the enduring themes of prejudice, stereotypes, people's convictions and preconceptions. It forces the audience to question...VIEW DOCUMENT
The Fight For A Life
In the classic story of ?12 Angry Men? originally directed by Sidney Lunnet and then by William Friedkin many characteristics shine through in both films. Both directors chose different actors, camera angles, and lighting, but the essence of the film stays the same. Each film also is greatly influenced by the time period in which they were made. Each time period is reflected in many ways throughout the story of ?12 Angry Men?, the same deep message can be pulled from...VIEW DOCUMENT
How would you describe the group task?
The group task is to reach an unanimous decision. They have to 'do their duty', they have to reach a consenus decision, so they are forced to have a dialogue with an extreme diverse set of people.
Why conflict arises?
When they perform a preliminary vote, they find out that one juror think the accused is not guilty 'beyond reasonable doubts'. The other 11 jurors are surprised and then quite angry that HF does not see the 'obvious' guilt in the case. Conflict...VIEW DOCUMENT
This movie is one of the best that has ever been made. I believe that the writer did an incredible job with the script which is mostly what carries the film. When this film is viewed several times it just seems to get better. The many fine points that are within this film are like no other film has ever done. This is a film that is shot in black and white. Ths is most fitting because the film is some what a good vs. evil, or black and white. Small elements like these are so much fun to notice throughout the film.
This film is shot mostly in a jury room whom the jurors are to decide the fate of an 18-year old who is accused of killing his father. Within the jury room the film depends...VIEW DOCUMENT

"Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and I-- / I took the one less traveled by, / And that has made all the difference" (Frost "The Road Not Taken" 18-20). Two great pieces of literature, Frost's poem and Reginald Rose's play 12 Angry Men, treat the theme of making difficult decisions with openness and honesty. In "The Road Not Taken," a man walks along a road in a "yellow wood." He comes to a fork in the road and must decide which path to take. In the end, he picks the road that not many people...VIEW DOCUMENT
In the story "12 angry Men", by Reginald Rose, juror six is described as an honest but slow man, one who finds it difficult to create a positive opinion, and is often listening and slowly trying to understand the opinions of others, rather then forming his own. In the text of the play, we can find examples of many of these characteristics of juror six and even more that were not given to us by the author.
The first, and most obvious attribute about his personality is seen in the play but cannot be found in words. This is the act of not talking. Although not written of course, six does...VIEW DOCUMENT
An exploration of selected texts, Huckleberry Finn (HF) by Twain, Wild Cat Falling (WCF) by Johnson and Twelve Angry Men (TAM) by Rose, reveal common themes that are of universal interest. All texts raise the issue of racial prejudice. In HF Twain uses the naïve narrator, Huck, to reveal the racial discrimination that is a socially disease. Similarly, in WCF, Johnson criticises the discrimination of the whites towards the Aborigines. It is clear that all composers are critical of the racial attitude of many prejudiced people in society. Another common theme is injustice. However, this theme varies...VIEW DOCUMENT
The human condition is the way in which we carry out our roles and responsibilities; it is our judgments and accusations of others through ignorance, bias or self preservation, our search for the truth and our efforts to grapple with the challenges of life. It encompasses our every belief, temptation, emotion and thought. The three texts The Crucible by authur miller, stopping by the woods on a snowy evening by Robert Frost and the play 12 angry men directed by Sidney Lumet; help to capture these diverse aspects of the human condition.
The Crucible mirrors aspects...VIEW DOCUMENT
The movie "Twelve Angry Men" is about a young man who is accused of stabbing his father to death. The twelve jurors have to decide whether the defendant is guilty or innocent. If the young man is found guilty, there is a mandatory death sentence (the jury needs to be unanimous in their decision). At the preliminary vote, eleven of the twelve jurors vote the young man guilty. Henry Fonda is the only one who voted the accused as not guilty because he doesn't want to send the defendant to the death penalty without discussing it. Throughout the movie, Henry uses various styles of leadership in which I will discuss further...VIEW DOCUMENT
There are two methods of determining whether a person being charged with a criminal offense is guilty or not guilty; they can be tried before a judge or before a judge and jury. Each of these methods has its advantages, but in my mind a trial by jury is a better way of determining whether someone is guilty or not. A jury trial includes more than one persons' decision and interpretation of the evidence, it offers a thorough review and analysis of the credibility of the evidence, and it produces an unbiased verdict. These are three aspects of a jury trial that make it a good way to reach a...VIEW DOCUMENT

Aneeb Adrees - practice sac- Q2) the jurors represent the worst facets of human nature and of soceity itself. Do you agree?
In Reginald Roses Twelve angry men, Rose illustrates and explores the worst facets of human nature. Through his depiction of the jurors, and the way they interact, Rose creates an environment where fallibilities of human beings can be examined. Rose depicts prejudice, self-interest along with many other negative traits a human can have. Rose outlines the strengths of a few individuals and how they can be depicted in society today.
Rose depicts many jurors as a standout to...VIEW DOCUMENT

"The Letter of Paul to the Galatians" was written to the churches of Galatians, and shows Paul's conflict with the other missionaries regarding whether gentile converts should have to perform the ceremonial practices of the Old Testament. Paul writes to persuade the Galatians in his letter, in a passionate and almost angry approach and criticizes those who are teaching in this false way. He declares that he has the authority of a true apostle, and stressed that he once persecuted Christians but then converted...VIEW DOCUMENT
