Just Mercy Movie Review

Jasmine Mercado Cruz

Just Mercy was released on December 25 2020 the movie is still play in theaters now. The main cast was Michael B. Jordan, playing Bryan Stevens, and Jamie Foxx played Walter McMiller. The movie was based on the Walter McMillian Death Row case in Alabama. Bryan Stevens was a lawyer who moved to Alabama to help people who couldn’t afford a proper lawyer. Stevens was convinced that Walter was wrongly condemned to Death Row and was innocent. At the same time Stevens was helping Walter, he was also trying to help George Stinney, who was killed. The movie was very emotional and shows how cruel some people can be. The fact that the movie is based on a true story make it even more emotional because this actually happened.  In my opinion, this is a great movie, especially for people who love to learn about history.
