What’s the movie about?
A powerful and thought-provoking true story. “Just Mercy” follows young lawyer Bryan Stevenson (Jordan) and his historic fight for justice. After graduating from Harvard, Bryan had a choice of several lucrative jobs. Instead, he sets out for Alabama to defend those wrongfully convicted, with the help of local attorney Eva Ansley (Larson). One of his first and most insurgent cases is that of Walter McMillian (Foxx), who was sentenced to death in 1987 for the infamous murder of an 18-year-old girl, even though the evidence of his innocence outweighs the evidence of his guilt and the only testimony against him came from a criminal with a motive to lie. In the years that followed, Bryan finds himself caught in a maze of legal and political maneuvering and overt and brazen racism as he fights for Walter and others like him, with odds – and the system – against them.
