Lindy Lou Juror Number 2 (2017) Human Rights Watch Film Festival 2017
A juror who was part of jury that sentenced a man to death twenty year earlier hits the road to discover how the other jurors have coped with what they had done.
This is a film that is both more and less complicated than it sounds. Lindy, our focus, was filled with guilt and visited the defendant in prison up until his death. There is a great deal going on with her. However some of the discussions with the other jurors, while good are not as meaty, the result of not really having a great deal of time with them before we are bumped to the next person. None of this was bad but I kind of wish this ran longer than the 85 minutes.
Worth a look.
