Just Mercy

Just Mercy Summary and Synopsis

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 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 (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. The powerful true story of Harvard-educated lawyer Bryan Stevenson, who goes to Alabama to defend the disenfranchised and wrongly condemned — including Walter McMillian, a man sentenced to death despite evidence proving his innocence. Bryan fights tirelessly for Walter with the system stacked against them. Just Mercy Wiki

- Gives a great view on racism5 star

As a white guy from Holland, I have never experienced racism, nor did I really know what it was. I think this movie should be watched by everyone, to understand at what inequality is. Thanks iTunes to have this movie available for free. Otherwise I probably wouldn’t have seen this movie, which can really make a difference in the way I look at racism, and hopefully will make everyone understand racism and help to ban it.

- Wow that was good5 star

👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

- Strongly recommend5 star

It’s crazy to think that USA is one of the very few developed countries that still has such a barbaric justice system, as well, as death penalty itself. This movie needs to be watched by as many people as possible. It’s crazy how some bigots can take away 5-10-30 years out of people’s lives by wrongly convicting them of crimes they haven’t committed.

- A must see!5 star

This movie is for everyone. It is thought provoking, and eye opening. I do not think you can watch this movie, and come away unchanged. It is amazing.

- Emotional5 star

This is one of the most heart touching movies. All emotions come out while watching this movie. So sad that racism is still apart of this day in age. But I pray God, fixes these issues. Amazing story and everyone needs to see this. Well done by all acting staff and all who worked to make this movie. Bravo.

- SAD TIMES FOR THE WORLD /EP[C TIMES !4 star

THIS REMINDS ME ALOT OF THE MOVIE A TIME TO KILL WITH THE WHITE LAWYER WHO HELPED AND RISKED HIS LIFE AMONG RIOTS BECAUSE HE WAS TAKING ON A VERY SAD CASE THAT WAS REALLU ABOUT A LITTLE GIRL WHO WAS RAPED. HER FATHER, PLAYED BY SAMUEL JACKSON SHOT THE MAN THAT RAPED AND TORTURED,COULD NEVER HAVE KIDS, AND JUST AWFUL. HE WAS SET FREE AND BOTH THE LAWYER AND HIS FAMILY FINALLY HAD TIME TOGETHER AND HAD MYCH MORE IN COMMON WHEN U ERASE COLOR. TRUE CRIME IS ANOTHER MAN ON DEATH ROW WHO ALMOST DIED AND JOURNALIST PLAYED BY CLINT EASTWOOD SET HIM FREE. TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, DIARY OF ANNE FRANK,MANY MOVIES OF WAR AND OUR MILITARY SUFFERING,NOT GETTING ENOUGH CREDIT,THE LIST GOES ON. WE CAN EDUCATE OURSELVES BECAUSE WAKE UP FOLKS, THESE ARE BAD TIMES ALL OVER THE WORLD. MARTIN L.K.,BOB MARLEY.MY ANCESTORS WHO SUFFERED IN CONCENTRATION CAMPS,THEIR BABIES BEING MUJRDERED IN FRONT OF THEM. MEN AND WOMAN HAVING TO CHOOSE MENTAL ANGUISH TO THE POINT OF NO RETURN. THE MESSAGE THAT WE OF ALL CHILDREN OF GOD AND A DAUGHTER,MOTHER SIBLING TO HORRIFYING ACTS HAS BEEN A TIMELINE. WHAT MESSAGE WE HEAR IS IMPORTANT,THE MESSANGER IS NEVER SEEN OR HEARD OF MOST OF THE TIME. MANY AROUND THE GLOBE WHO HAVE COME FROM NOTHING BUT HAVE MADE SOMETHING OF THEMSELVES HAVE BEEN POWERFUL INSPIRATIONS TO ME AND HAVE DIED BECAUSE OF PREDJUDICE ,POWER WAR. WE NEED TO WATCH OR READ MANY STORIES BECAUSE ALL VOICES NEED TO BE HEARD AND NOT SILENT. I SEE THAT MANY HAVE JUST WATCHED THIS MOVIE AND FOR FREE IT IS NICE, SO IS THE LIBRARY AND THE POWER OF THE PEOPLE. ALL VOICES NEED TO BE HEARD AND ALL MESSAGES NEED TO BE TOLD,REGARDLESS OF THE COLOR OF OUR SKIN.. THAT BEING OF AN INJUSTICE OF ALL FOR MANY ..AND MANY OF US HAVE NOT EVEN BEEN DOWN THE PATH OF OUR ANCESTORS GOING BACK MANY MANY DECADES AGO. WAR, FAMINE INJUSTICE, PREJUDICE. WE AS PEOPLE ARE POWER IN NUMBERS, SO SPEAK LOUD BUT DONT SHOOT THE MESSENGER. GANGS FROM KLU KLUX KLAN,THE CRYPTS,BROTHERS OF F.O.P. WILL CONTINUE ON IF HARD WORK AND EDUCATE OURSELVES BECAUSE IF WE RELY ON THE EXACT FIGURE THAT DOES NOT SPOON FEED BUT OUR MINDS ARE CLOGGEDB THIS WILL CONTINUE. lets not forget hitler,stalin WE HAVE 5 YEAR OLDS GETTING SHOT. RIOTS BECAYSE ONE PERSON IS CATHOLIC AND THE OTHER JEWISH. PEOPLE CHOOOOOOOSE TO FIGHT THEIR WAY THROUGH LIFE BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT IS DICTATING BELIEFS ARE WRONG AND RIGHT. EVERY WORD HAS A SENTENCE AND EVERY SENTANCE FORMS A STORY AND EVERY STORY HAS A RIGHT TO BE LOOKED AT IN A MANNER WHERE THE DIFFERENCES DONT CAUSE UNNESCESSARY CONSEQUENCES WHICH FORM PREDJUDICE.

There is nothing better to inspire hope and draw emotion like a true story of real people dealing with with issues. This a story worth being told a hundred times over, and learned from.

- Excellent!5 star

Good story telling.

- Great movie5 star

An amazing movie that everyone should see. Brought tears to my eyes.

- Thanks for the Free Movie!4 star

To be honest, I only intended to watch for awhile until I could not stand it anymore, & maybe watch the rest of it later. The main draw was the superb cast, such as Foxx & Jordan & others, and the more I paid attention & watched, the longer I was interested in the story & drawn into it like a sponge wanting to absorb it all & stay to the end. Don't get me wrong, I usually hate most true stories, and not so drawn to this genre and never buy any prison movie. I am white, conservative Christian, & never predujice unless someone gave me a reason to be. I hated what happened in the most recent case we have all been drawn to, but we have to keep in mind that it is the exception, not the rule. I can't imagine any cop of any color actually wanting to kill another man intentionally, yet it takes just one to ruin many lives not just one. Also, all the looting & other killing does not help the cause, & in fact, just makes it worse. Life is short, and better to be a good example like Jesus would want us to be instead of being as bad as one's attacker is or could be. Pray for all concerned and rise above! BTW, I was raised in AL. Thanks!

- Everyone needs to see this5 star

This is an important story that everyone needs to see. Thank you for making it free, now I want to buy it.

- Great story5 star

Sad story I’m really felt back Robert

- Very good and inspiring5 star

Anyone who says otherwise is a [email protected]&$ racist period!!!!

- My only complaint...5 star

...is that this was made available to rent for free in the midst of Covid- because I really needed a hug after some of those scenes, one in particular. You’ll know it when you see it. Just be prepared, this isn’t a film you watch and then forget about. I’ve got a feeling I’ll be living with this (true) story for a really long time- as well I should.

- Great insightful movie5 star

Considering that this is a true story and this group of people, and many more like them, continue to fight the good fight for ALL is absolutely inspirational

- Very powerful5 star

I knew nothing about this film until I read a blurb about it on my news feed. I knew what it likely contained and was about from the summary but the quiet straight forward delivery made it all the more powerful. The world we find ourselves in right now scares me terribly....This gives me a small ray of hope.....

- Great Movie5 star

A great Friday night flick. Story was real, true, and portrayed in good way for all to watch. Never a dull moment.

- Inspirational!5 star

This is the kind of movie that makes you think there’s still good in this world.

- Beautiful tear jerker5 star

My wife and I loved this movie. It is sad that the under belly of racism, bigotry, and hatred still exists today for the minority, poor, and disenfranchised. This movie did a great job highlighting those “ugly truths” and brought an ever present reality to the big screen. Kudos to Michael B Jordan, for producing and starring in this movie in an extremely passionate fashion!

Words can’t express the raw emotion this movie draws out of a single person. And to think this abhorrent racial injustice still exists in today’s society. God Bless Stevenson and his life’s work

KeriScar - Just Mercy5 star

It is hard to believe that a human can think of himself as better than another just because of skin colour. Racism is horrific, I am so glad these stories are told. Amazing movie and cast!

Kingsfield - Just Mercy5 star

This movie addresses the larger issues. Really interesting

Ozman68 - Justice served5 star

A movie that reminds us all how inhuman and cruel mankind can be towards each other at times .

Tiffstar2305 - Wow5 star

Was it the film? Maybe? I don’t completely know. I feel like this was such a powerful story that it almost told itself. I never cry in movies. I cried so much in this one. The fact that this is based on reality is just heart breaking.

matty21! - Powerful and story telling5 star

So powerful in the the way to really share the history of some of the brave people hat went through so much. Recommended to anyone who loves history and storytelling told so raw.

lettersnnumbers - Just Mercy - corrupt and unequal justice system to the poor and minorities5 star

Intense courtroom drama based on actual events and based on the book by the same name, about a trainee lawyer who moves to Alabama to devote his career to defending the unfortunate community, the people who were not able to afford appropriate defence (these were mostly black). His first case was that of Walter McMillian, who was sentenced to death for the murder of a white woman. However, all the evidence showed that he was innocent, and it was more suspicious that the only testimony against him came from another criminal who was also on death row. This film shows how corrupt the justice system can be, the poor and minorities are too often not treated equally. The post credit scenes tell you what happened to each of the people featured. Highly recommended.

Yatesyates30 - Top film5 star

A very powerful and brilliantly made film highlighting some of the injustice faced by black communities. The actors really makes you feel the frustrations experienced by the real life characters they play. An excellent watch.

Sonaburn - Powerful and inspiring5 star

A tremendous film that is really engaging. Very emotional and inspiring. It makes you want to be a better person and help change the world. It also exposes the evil of racism and hate. So glad I watched it.

Raees9986 - Just mercy had everything5 star

This story was incredibly portrayed and is a must watch for anyone! This film should be much more in the limelight as it was such a moving and top film and this is coming from someone who usually isn’t moved by film and has a limitless odeon pass!!

AppGuy42 - Amazing...5 star

Brilliantly acted too. You’ll be moved to tears.

HOSPITALITYGAV - Exceptional - Stark - True5 star

Sometimes a movie transcends what I have expected from cinema. This reminded me of both the importance of cinema and the tragedy of our history. This should help remind and educate in equal measure. I would expect both Jackson and Fox to receive nominations for their moving performances. Thank you for sharing this story🙏🏻

MFxShadow76 - Very powerful and moving5 star

Jordan and Fox go all out in this powerful film that showed the struggles for African americans living in the south who had to contend with diabolical police, sheriffs and law officials

I thoroughly enjoyed this film! Michael B.Jordan, Jamie Foxx, Brie Larson , and the supporting cast were outstanding in their roles. The storyline could be frustrating and sad, yet inspirational and hopeful. Well written and directed. I highly recommend this film.

thehehehhehehehehe - Life changing5 star

This movie has changed my life so much! Thank you for showing me what I needed to see. I’m so grateful that times have changed.

Samtual - 3.5 stars3 star

This movie is too biased, Why didn’t the lawyer look for the women’s true killer? The story is amazing, but we never learn who really killed her, who’s supposed to serve justice here? I think that matters as well.

Realblog - A well acted "eye opener!"5 star

A great movie, well acted, well directed, and outstanding delivery. This movie exposes the corruption, hatred, abuse, and then the ability to change it, when we come together for the good of the country. This is a MUST see, and now part of my library.
