Just Mercy

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
had his pick of lucrative jobs. Instead, he heads to Alabama to defend those wrongly condemned
or who were not afforded proper representation, 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.
