In Monroeville, Alabama—To Kill a Mockingbird author Harper Lee’s lifelong home—African American Walter McMillian (Oscar® winner Jamie Foxx) was sentenced to death for killing a white woman in 1988. As a result, a real-life, modern-day Atticus Finch in the form of recent Harvard Law grad Bryan Stevenson (Michael B. Jordan) challenged a corrupt, racist system to free an innocent man. Foxx and Jordan deliver indelible performances alongside standout supporting cast members Brie Larson, Tim Blake Nelson, and Rob Morgan in Destin Daniel Cretton’s (Short Term 12) gripping drama adapted from famed civil rights attorney Stevenson’s searing memoir. US 2019, 136 min Director Destin Daniel Cretton
