Just Mercy

Just Mercy ★★★★

Hits genre conventions pretty hard, but does it so well with an infuriating and engrossing true life drama. It's always sad seeing the true stories set in the '90s and barely seeing a difference in racial attitudes in America, I honestly wouldn't have surprised me if this had happened yesterday. Michael B Jordan and Jamie Foxx give strong, subdued performances that make their characters very likeable and ones you constantly root for. Surprised it hasn't been getting more awards buzz. I mean it's great, but we've seen these important stories done much better in the past, but it seems like the thing award voters eat up.
