Just Mercy

  •   Destin Daniel Cretton
  •   United States
  •   Black Perspectives, Gala Presentation

Just Mercy is the true story of young lawyer Bryan Stevenson (Michael B. Jordan) and his history-making battles for justice in Alabama. Stevenson refuses to back down as he fights a legal system without mercy stacked against him and his clients at every turn. One of his first, and most incendiary, cases is that of Walter McMillian (Jamie Foxx), a man whose clear innocence means nothing to the corrupt and compassionless forces Stevenson doggedly takes on.

Just Mercy is a handsome, impeccably mounted tribute to his activism and also his fellow advocates.”
