Michael B. Jordan continues to prove himself one of Hollywood’s most versatile talents.
The star top-lines Warner Bros‘ gripping drama ‘Just Mercy’ – which has delivered solid results during its limited holiday debut.
Powerful, pensive, and thought-provoking, the true story tells the tale of attorney Bryan Stevenson (Jordan) and his groundbreaking battle for justice.
A Harvard graduate, Stevenson had a buffet table of job opportunities awaiting his picking. However, he instead heads to Alabama to help the falsely accused pursue their vindication.
During his quest, he encounters Walter McMillian (played by Foxx), who had been sentenced to death for the murder of a teen girl. This despite the existence of ample evidence in support of his innocence.
Together they strive to overturn the judgement.
