    Having lived in the Deep South in the late sixties, the movie really resonated. I think it is an important well told story and a first rate film. Credit goes to a screenplay that was not overdone and yet unflinching in its portrayal of the injustices done to death row inmates who were primarily black. That the film is based on actual events is all the more significant and is an important commentary on the importance of fair trials and the need for just outcomes. Great cast led by Jamie Foxx.

    "Just Mercy," is a movie that captivated my attention. It is a truth that pains, yet, a truth that needs to be recognized and remembered. The movie reminded me of the lives that were sacrificed for justice. It also reminds me of the courageous men and women who fought for justice and who prevailed in their effort. "Just Mercy" deserves the attention and recognition of the Oscar for best picture in 2020!

    I know the movie which, based on a true story... but it is kind of unbelievable that a Harvard law grad would work pro bono cases for a living. Especially right out of college when students are facing huge student loan debts. I think the movie story tellers could have fill-in some drama in order to fill this gaping hole in the reality aspect, to make the story better. Also, the defence team basically tanked at the end of the movie giving Michael B. Jordan's character an EASY win. This may have been how the case played out in real life but it really lacked the Hollywood drama that is expected in movies which have such a premiere cast. Expected more.

    I see most movies that are not animated. Best movie in a very long time. Sickening these types of movies are based on true stories. Should never happen to anyone. I would be disappointed if no academy awards are given to this. Great acting by everyone.

    Yet another movie with a politically motivated agenda exercising sanctioned hate and bigotry while claiming others are doing the same.
