Just Mercy is drama film directed by Destin Daniel Cretton, and written by Destin Daniel Cretton, Andrew Lanham and Bryan Stevenson. The film stars Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Foxx, Brie Larson, Tim Blake Nelson, O Shea Jackson Jr., Rob Morgan and Rafe Spall. It primiered at September 6, 2019 on Toronto International Film Festival.

Just Mercy follows young lawyer Bryan Stevenson (Michael B. 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 (Brie Larson).

One of his first, and most incendiary, cases is that of Walter McMillian (Jamie 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.
