Staring Michael B Jordan as American civil rights attorney Bryan Stevenson, and Jamie Foxx as Walter McMillan, a man who was wrongly convicted and sentenced to death row, the film is an adaptation into a legal drama of one Stevenson’s most important real life cases, and takes its title from his 2014 book of the same name. Thus, as a fact-based retelling of a grave miscarriage of justice, the film is extremely interesting and indeed, Stevenson’s book (and audiobook) Just Mercy has already proved to be a very popular source of inspiration among many young and aspiring lawyers.
