The stronger sex; sorry boys
1 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A wonderfully realized film, elegant and economical. The script was lean and informed by the era, with sudden lightning strokes of simple, powerful dialog. The director takes the two female leads from assumptions to a greater conviction, in non-judicial sense. Like the directing, the editing was seamless and yet telling, turning a subtle rock slide into an sudden avalanche. This reviewer wants to haul out the adjectives and praise "Jury," but that just won't do for a gem. This is a film about details and strength, the unseen distaff world. An alternative title might have been "Two Angry Women," Yep, it's "12 Angry Men" without the thunder.
