Trial by Jury

Trial by JuryTrial by Jury (1994)
A juror is threatened by the defendant in a murder trial to vote against conviction. In this simmering thriller, the juror is presented with new dangers at every turn. The personal character of the threats made them palpable. The mobsters were unusually creepy, their slime insidious.  Joanne Whalley and William Hurt gave especially good performances. Gabriel Byrne was also especially convincing. I’ll never forget Hurt’s line when pleading with Valerie to follow his instructions, “The name of the game, Valerie, is not who dies but who dies first.”
