Intense courtroom drama based on actual events and based on the book by the same name, about a trainee lawyer who moves to Alabama to devote his career to defending the unfortunate community, the people who were not able to afforded appropriate defence (these were mostly black).

His first case was that of Walter McMillian, who was sentenced to death for the murder of a white woman. However, all the evidence showed that he was innocent, and it was more suspicious that the only testimony against him came from another criminal who was also on death row.

This film shows how corrupt the justice system can be, the poor and minorities are too often not treated equally. The post credit scenes tell you what happened to each of the people featured.

Highly recommended.

This fantastic and gripping real story is made for the cinema! I wasn't aware of this great and inspiring person and I am glad this movie introduced me to him and his life story!

While this story is mixes a lot of ups and downs, you can still feel dread at times. This all though builds up to an extend that rewards you and the director is able to get that feeling of relief, camaraderie and courage transported to YOU in the audience, no matter if you are black or white.

The end credits will give you goosebumps, with the expected real life footage that reminds you again, that most of what you've seen in the last 2 hours, really happened to people. This is exactly the thought you should leave the cinema with. Sometimes, it only takes one kind person to have a huge impact!

This is such an important and beautiful film. Performances from the main cast were without a doubt oscar-worthy. The story was told so diligently, I have so much respect for the incredible individuals working at EJI. It's a hard-hitting film but definitely worth the watch.

Very intense and gripping plot screenplay play is brilliant

An important film for our times about racial injustice and the cruelty that is the US criminal justice system. Very moving and powerful. Wonderful performances from the two main leads - Jordan and Foxx, with strong supporting performances from Brie Larson and Rafe Spall. Recommend to anyone who wants to become a lawyer or is just interested in US politics and history.

This movie had me in tears and is so relevant now. The ending message is so important at a time like this. The acting was phenomenal. I have not read the book, so am unable to compare the two. Jamie Foxx's acting was incredible. Do not pay attention to the reviews which say no new storyline or nothing groundbreaking. The racism and flaws prevalent in our criminal justice system deserve to be highlighted and emphasized time and time again. The characters in this movie are REAL people and that makes it all the more heart wrenching and impactful.
