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.

It follows a fairly traditional arc, but this prison/courtroom drama is still effectively moving and stressed due to exceptional performances and the image it presents of simmering racial injustice. Directed by Destin Daniel Cretton, Just Mercy almost always feels just like a picture. All of the familiar beats, speeches, and plot turns to happen when they’re supposed to, without the messiness of life coming into it (because it did so vividly in Cretton’s remarkable breakthrough feature( Short Term 12). But the film quickly establishes a good sense of location, from Bryan suffering the indignities of being Black in Alabama to the massive gathering of friends and neighbors in the house of Johnny D.’s family when Bryan goes to view them.

Then, as the pieces of the puzzle come together, sometimes blocked by bigotry and corruption, the tension and excitement start to ramp up. The last bit is Foxx, who’s very good as Johnny D., hardened and unwilling to trust anymore. From the moments he does actually locate hope, his emotion is palpable.
