JUST MERCY (2019 film)
|Director||:Destin Daniel Cretton|
|Run Time||:136 minutes|
A powerful and thought-provoking true story, "Just Mercy" follows young lawyer Bryan Stevenson (Jordan) and his history-making battle for justice. After graduating from Harvard, Bryan might have had his pick of lucrative jobs. Instead, he heads to Alabama to defend those wrongly condemned, with the support of local advocate Eva Ansley (Larson.)
One of his first, and most incendiary, cases is that of Walter McMillian (Foxx,) 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 and the fact that the only testimony against him came from a criminal with a motive to lie.
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.

We're Including A FREE Membership To ClearPlay
ClearPlay allows you to filter this movie for your audience. In the past, parental controls would prevent viewing of an entire movie. Filtering is different. With filtering, you can watch a movie and automatically skip over and mute just the scenes and language you don't want in front of your family audience. We'll provide instructions on how to install and set up ClearPlay for your JUST MERCY movie night.
As a celebration of what it takes to eke out justice in a broken system, it's a welcome return to formula.
"Just Mercy" is a handsome, impeccably mounted tribute to his activism and also his fellow advocates.
