    Excellent!!!

    This is an excellent film that is powerful and gripping! Duvinder Singh is a shy, reclusive 16 year-old Sikh boy that's on trial for allegedly murdering his 15 year-old schoolmate in cold blood. Duvinder was a victim of harsh bullying and suffered emotional and physical pain at the hands of three of his classmates, mostly John Maher. Duvinder later stole a ceremonial sword from his temple and allegedly killed John Maher. Closing arguments by the prosecution state that Duvinder is a heartless murderer. The defense says the evidence against him is circumstantial and that he's a gentle 16-year old not capable of murder who was picked on because he's a Sikh. The case then goes to the jury that will decide Duvinder's fate. It focuses mainly on 7 of the jurors but features the other 5 jurors in peripheral roles. They come from different walks of life and are under stress from problems in their personal lives and the stress of the trial. Rose Davies (Helen McCrory) is a frustrated woman in an unhappy marriage. She meets another juror named Johnnie (Gerard Butler), they form a friendship that's threatened when Rose's husband sees them together. Peter Segal (Michael Maloney) has been bossed around by his overbearing father-in-law. To him jury duty is a way for him to be part of a process his father-in-law has nothing to do with. Elsie Beamish (Sylvia Syms) is suffering from an illness. She meets Charles Gore (Stuart Bunce) who is new in the Catholic seminary and has second thoughts about being there. Jeremy Crawford (Nicholas Farrell) and his family are forced to live in poverty after he made a bad investment a while back, but now has a chance to seek revenge at the person who caused it. Marcia Thomas (Nina Sosanya) is a single at odds with her mother for never being there when she was young. In the jury room, they don't get along too well and they're pushed to the limits. This is a great film that has good performancesand characters we can relate to. Sir Derek Jacobi gives a remarkable performance prestigious QC (queen's counsel) George Cording. Sir Antony Sher is superb as prosecutor Gerald Lewis. Helen McCrory, Michael Maloney, Nina Sosanya and Gerard Butler also give good performances in their respective roles as does Sonnell Dadral as Duvinder Singh. This is a recommended film!
