SYNOPSIS

“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.

The film, directed by Destin Daniel Cretton, features an adapted screenplay written by Cretton and Andrew Lanham based on the book Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson, and is produced by Gil Netter, Asher Goldstein and Michael B. Jordan. “Just Mercy” also stars Rob Morgan, Tim Blake Nelson, Rafe Spall, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Karan Kendrick and Brie Larson.
