Synopsis: Michael B. Jordan and Oscar winners Jamie Foxx and Brie Larson star in JUST MERCY, an inspiring drama that brings one of the most important stories of our time to the big screen. Award-winning filmmaker Destin Daniel Cretton directed the film from a screenplay he co-wrote, based on the award-winning nonfiction bestseller by Bryan Stevenson. A powerful and thought-provoking true story, JUST MERCY follows young lawyer Bryan Stevenson and his history-making battle for justice. After graduating from Harvard Law School, Bryan had his pick of lucrative jobs. Instead, he headed to Alabama to defend those wrongly condemned or who were not afforded proper representation. One of his first, and most incendiary, cases was that of Walter McMillian, who, in 1987, was sentenced to die for the notorious murder of an 18-year-old girl, despite a preponderance of evidence proving his innocence. In the years that follow, Bryan becomes embroiled in a labyrinth of legal and political maneuverings and overt and unabashed racism as he fights for Walter, and others like him, with the odds—and the system—stacked against them.
