12 Angry Men made a great impact in Russia when first screened in 1961. Jury trials were featured in classic novels of Dostoevsky and Tolstoy in the nineteenth century and, after having been reintroduced in Russia in the 1990s are again becoming part of its culture. The article will explore this history and discuss the continued importance of 12 Angry Men today on Russia's stages and in the new remake by filmmaker Nikita Mikhalkov.
