Just Mercy, an inspiring true story against racism and injustice.

Don’t miss JJust Mercy on HBO, a biographical and judicial drama directed by Destin Daniel Cretton and starring Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Foxx and Brie Larson.

In 1989, young lawyers Bryan Stevenson (Michael B. Jordan, known for his performances in Fahrenheit 451, Creed and Black Panther) and Eva Ansley (Brie Larson, from movies like Captain Marvel and Room) founded the Alabama nonprofit Equal Justice Initiative, the primary purpose of which was then and still is to legally represent prisoners who may have been wrongfully convicted. While visiting the death row in an Alabama jail, Stevenson meets Walter "Johnny D." McMillian (Jamie Foxx, whose filmography includes roles in Django Unchained, Stealth, and many more), a man convicted of the murder of Ronda Morrison, a white woman. When Stevenson reviews the evidence in the case, however, he discovers that it depends entirely on the unreliable testimony of convict Ralph Myers (Tim Blake Nelson, whose credits include roles in the movie O Brother, Where Art Thou? and HBO’s Watchmen). From then on, Stevenson and Ansley will do everything in their power to rectify the injustice committed in the McMillian case.

Just Mercy is both a biographical and a legal drama. Bryan Stevenson's life should matter to us mainly because of his inability to resign himself to injustice, because of his firmness, and intelligence and courage when fighting for his convictions. The biography, the very life of a person like Stevenson is an insistent and unyielding opposition to injustice and any form of discrimination before the law, such as racism.

Don't miss Michael B. Jordan, Brie Larson and Jamie Foxxx starring in Just Mercy on Saturday, November 14 on HBO and HBO GO.
