There’s nothing flashy about this faithful retelling of Twelve Angry Men, Reginald Rose’s classic story of a dozen men wrestling more with their own fears and prejudices than with matters of law. And that’s precisely why it works. Richard Thomas brings Waltonian goodness to the role of a principled juror who tries to slow the wheels of justice before they crush a 16-year-old boy accused of patricide, and Cheers vet George Wendt, though woefully underused, packs a punch as the put-upon foreman. This is one jury-duty stint you won’t try to get out of.
