Just watched Just Mercy (2019) with Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Foxx, Rob Morgan, Tim Blake Nelson, Rafe Spall, Karan Kendrick and Brie Larson. It tells the true story of Walter McMillian, who, with the help of young defense attorney Bryan Stevenson, appeals his murder conviction. This story was based on the book Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption (2014) by Bryan Stevenson.
I admit I have never been a big fan of Jamie Foxx but his performance in this film is solid. Along with Michael B. Jordan who carried this film, did an outstanding job. When I first heard of the film I noticed that Brie Larson was in it. She's the reason I wanted to see this and she was great. After her performance in "Room" she can do no wrong in my opinion.
This is a powerful powerful film that I dare you not to cry watching.
I give this an A+ way up
