Daniel Cretton’s Destin author:
Destin Daniel Cretton, Andrew Lanham | A powerful, gripping and provocative story, “Just Mercy,” follows young lawyer Bryan Stevenson (Jordan) and his historic fight for justice. After graduating from Harvard, Bryan may have chosen lucrative jobs. Instead, he goes to Alabama with the support of local attorney Eva Ansley (Larson.) To defend those with incorrect judgment. One of his first and most innocent cases is Walter McMillian (Foxx), who was sentenced in 1987 to punishment. to die for the notorious murder of an 18-year-old girl, despite overwhelming evidence of her innocence and the fact that the only evidence against her was from a criminal who had a motive for lying. Over the years that followed, Bryan has fallen into a maze of legal and political maneuvers and obvious and unrestrained racism as he fights for Walter and his like, the odds – and the system – stuffed against them.
