About this movie

A powerful and thoughtprovoking 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.

muito bom o filme,nos põe para refletir sobre as injustiça causadas por simplesmente ser negro numa sociedade que ignora que os pobres e menos afortunados são tratados de forma desigual e injusta!

Inescapável ver, se emocionar e compartilhar. Algo, se não tudo, vem do coração e esse filme reconecta este fio. Este liame, com a integridade da vida.

Filme espetacular! Emocionante! Aula de direito, cidadania e justiça! Obs. Caso assista dublado, aconselho a assistir também com a legenda, pois em um momento do filme ( sem querer dar spoiler ), o áudio fica original, em inglês.
