Storyline Heading
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. One of his first, and most incendiary, cases is 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 and the fact that the main testimony against him came from a criminal with a motive to lie.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - This fact based drama is a big showcase for stars Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Foxx. Brie Larson fans may be disappointed by her fairly limited role. While language and objectionable content is moderate, heavy and mature subject matter dealing with the death penalty makes this not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good ...it's a well-made, affecting tale about do-gooders who do good rather than merely muddying the waters. It's a clear-eyed look at the ugly side of jurisprudence and how the concept of justice often requires a lot more than appearing in a courtroom and trusting to the rightness of one's position...

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average His last, horrific scene is so well acted that it still haunts me; it's the only time the viewer is forced to be uncomfortably conflicted, to think about the complicated nature of injustice. I wish the rest of "Just Mercy" had that level of jarring complexity instead of relying on easy tropes to deliver its message.

USA Today Full Review
Very Good ...a solid courtroom drama that most fans of the genre have seen before. But great acting, an engaging real-life tale and moments of heartfelt honesty - with a fair bit of rousing satisfaction - elevate director Destin Daniel Cretton's true-life story of a young defense attorney who never falters from his idealistic ambitions.

Rex Reed Full Review
Good The scene where he teaches...breathing exercises to help him deal with anxiety...is monumentally moving... It is moments like this that allow Just Mercy to rise above both its shopworn crusading lawyer-of-the-week structure and the weight of its good intentions, becoming an utterly necessary meditation on the essentiality of human dignity.
