12 

Nominated for a Best Foreign Language Film Oscar in 2008, Russian actor and director Nikita Mikhalkov's engrossing 12 is finally in theaters. This revamp of 12 Angry Men takes place in post-communist Moscow. Various sectors of modern Russian society are uniformly represented by late-middle-aged males, with Mikhalkov as the foreman. The workingmen embody Russia's past; over the course of a remarkably fleet 159 minutes, each one shares how that past has shaped him and his perspective on a case loaded with nationalist baggage. The movement toward consensus raises the question of how to decide not only what is right but also what is best.
