‘Just Mercy’ Premieres at TIFF
“Just Mercy,” the film based on the award winning book Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by founder of the Equal Justice Initiative Bryan Stevenson, is premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival today. A press conference following the film’s release will be available for livestream on Sept. 7.
Directed by Destin Daniel Cretton and starring Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Foxx, and Brie Larson, the film is based on the true story behind Mr. Stevenson’s memoir and his tireless efforts to defend Walter McMillian, a young man who was sentenced to die for a murder he insisted he didn’t commit.
