What are you doing on Christmas Day? Eating your body weight in food? Chilling with family? Drinking to excess to fall asleep on the couch while the mother-in-law complains about everything? Going to church to pray to the Baby Jesus and ask him to stop Disney from ruining Marvel post Endgame?
Or maybe you could go to the cinema to get have a dose of worthy Oscar bait? After all, what else are you going to go and watch? Star Wars?
Just Mercy is released on Christmas Day, an American legal drama film directed by Destin Daniel Cretton, and starring Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Foxx, Rob Morgan, Tim Blake Nelson, Rafe Spall, 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. The film is based on the memoir of the same name, written by Bryan Stevenson.
It had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 6, 2019, and has been held back domestically until December 25th. This is about all of us.
