Twelve angry men

Imagine you are in a room with eleven people; everyone agrees on the same opinion and you, alone, have a different one: very different.

You are all forced to reach an agreement.

What do you do? How do you behave?

In this film, we see the application of critical thinking and communication techniques that you too can employ every day, in your personal and professional life.

A few words about the plot will be helpful.

With a cast of talented actors and nominated for four Oscar, Twelve angry men is an exciting movie that will involve you from the first to the last frame.

Eleven jurors think that the defendant is guilty of murder: the twelfth, however, have strong doubts about it.

How can he transfer his doubts to the other jurors and involve them in a discussion-based exclusively on facts?

What initially seems to be a trial with irrefutable evidence against a black boy accused of killing his father, becomes the occasion for one of the best movies in the history of cinema.

Below is the trailer, then I’ll talk to you about the aspects I found most interesting.




The crucial points of the movie

Here are the most impressive, all excellent reasons not to miss this movie:

  • the power of critical thinking;
  • the strength of stereotypes and prejudices;
  • techniques for formulating effective questions;
  • the ability to maintain the independence of thought under pressure;
  • the elegant use of the doubt to influence people;
  • the resistance to change opinion before the evidence.

A movie that you will never forget.
