I've read the other reviews about this movie -- all very different from my own. All I can tell you is that for me, this wasn't just a miniseries -- it was a deeply personal experience that has and continues to be very thought provoking. I won't get into a discussion of actors, costumes, settings and the like because these things are not really relevant to this particular work of art. The focal point should be determined by the viewer.

The characters were interesting and developed over the course of the movie. I was intrigued initially because the movie had Gerard Butler in it. I will watch it again and again because the writing and details of the entire show grip you. You are still left at the ending trying to suss out the truth. As for Gerard Butlers performance This role certainly portrayed how much range and depth the man has. The character is flawed, emotional, and raw at times. All the actors did a great job. I am a British show fan and this one does not disappoint. In fact since I am a huge fan of Gerard Butler this is such a treat.
The Jury (TV Series – ) - IMDb
I know a lot about the law so I was really involved in this story and it went right along the way with how a jury should proceed. Gerry is a lawyer and it was interesting to see how he interacted with the other members of the jury in this case. The life stories of the jury members and how this of course can influence how you work on a jury was also done well in this The Jury. Derek Jacobi does a great job as the lawyer of the prosecuted young man. All in all a very interesting 6 part series.

Everyone is agreed, I think, that the Brits put out great drama. This is no exception. THE JURY is a very interesting ensemble piece - almost a soaper - interweaving the lives of seven of the twelve members of a present-day jury that is hearing a teenage murder case in London's Old Bailey courthouse. Michael Maloney The Last Place On Earth, Henry V , as high-strung jury foreman Peter Segal, delivers one of the more interesting performances, trying to fend off his ever interfering father-in-law, who is determined to solve the case and influence Peter's vote.
Helen McCrory Anna Karenina, Lucky Jim as Rose Davies, a woman who is doing jury duty in order to escape a dull and smothering marriage, is also quite interesting, changing her clothes and makeup at the courthouse each day to become a different person from the one she is at home. But the real standout is Gerard Butler Beowulf And Grendel, Phantom Of The Opera, Dear Frankie as Johnnie Donne, a recovering alcoholic who has just gotten out of rehab and is unsure if he can emotionally handle a high-profile court case.
Halfway through the trial, he finds himself falling in love with Rose, whom he doesn't realize is married, and being punished for it physically by her husband.

Things go from bad to worse when Johnnie discovers that Rose is married. But he rises to the occasion in the jury room to convince one of his fellow jurors to cast the deciding vote in the trial. Butler does an exceptional job selling his character and fulfilling all promises in his more emotionally charged scenes. He did this coming off Attila, in which he played the title role - a degree different type character from Johnnie - and one in which he also excelled.
The Jury Series by Lee Goldberg
Butler was helped in the role of Johnnie by having struggled with alcoholism in his own life, which he readily is willing to discuss. It does not hold your attention in that regard. As a matter of fact, I was very disappointed when I first saw it, having become used to such visually stunning British dramas as Horatio Hornblower and Pride And Prejudice. However, what it lacks visually, it pretty much makes up for dramatically. I think I was first pulled into the story by the discussion over the blood-drenched shirt of the defendant versus his red school tie.
Which was it that the crossing attendant the "lollypop man" saw? The filmmakers, and the lawyers, handled that question masterfully, and had my respect from that point on. You won't be disappointed.
The Jury Series
This is a very good series, and, as I said, Gerard Butler is excellent. See all 77 reviews.
