Just Mercy


Just Mercy
Based on a true story, we follow young lawyer and his history-making battle for justice. After graduating from Harvard, he might have had his pick of lucrative jobs. Instead, he heads to Alabama to defend those wrongly condemned, with the support of a local advocate. One of his first, and most incendiary, cases is that of a man 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.

Tomatometer quote iconJust Mercy dramatizes a real-life injustice with solid performances, a steady directorial hand, and enough urgency to overcome a certain degree of earnest advocacy.
