CelebNMovies247.com is proud to present one of the most important films coming from Warner Bros. starring Jamie Foxx and Michael B. Jordan in JUST MERCY.
Based on Bryan Stevenson’s book of the same name, Destin Daniel Cretton’s film Just Mercy stars Jamie Foxx as wrongly-convicted death row prisoner Walter McMillian—a man without hope who is facing the electric chair.
Foxx had this to say about taking on the role of Walter McMillian:
Getting into this character was so powerful!
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.
