Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Two men demonstrate how a stabbing took place using the actual knife. These two are opposing each other, so it seems like one will actually stab the other. No violence takes place, but the scene can be suspenseful.
  • The main theme of the film is a murder. Sometimes the men get aggressively angry and frustrated in the jury room, a couple of times almost resorting to physical aggression with each other.
