Just Mercy: Hard hitting & Powerful

A hard hitting powerful legal drama that is both extremely relevant and immensely moving – steered by a tenacious Michael B. Jordan with bigwigs Jamie Foxx and Brie Larson standing ably by his side.

Based on a true story and Bryan Stevenson’s memoir with the same name , ‘Just Mercy’ takes a long hard look at the American judicial system highlighting systemic injustice as a deep rooted cultural phenomenon, in the 90s.⁣

Cut to 2020 and the system seems to have changed very little over the past 30 years – further exacerbated by the current political climate and uncertainty all around. ⁣

Make no mistake, this is a crowd pleaser and can be pretty predictable at times but the film manages to engage with its crisp camerawork, solid performances and evocative storyline.⁣
