      EVENT DETAILS
      Just Mercy

      Sponsored by Anita and Nick Donofrio, Ann and Steve Carlson, Daniela Sikora & Keitha Kinne, Allison and Jon Stockel, Julie and David Peck, and the Town of Ridgefield
      In addition to being shown after the film in the theater, our bonus content, sponsored by People’s United Bank, will also be available on our YouTube channel for anyone to watch from home. The bonus content for “Just Mercy” will consist of an interview with Karen Boykin-Towns, Vice Chairman of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) Board of Directors, led by Entertainment reporter Cheryl Washington.

      Directed by Destin Daniel Cretton. A powerful and thought-provoking true story, “Just Mercy” follows young lawyer Bryan Stevenson (Michael B. Jordan) and his history-making battle for justice. After graduating from Harvard, Bryan had his pick of lucrative jobs. Instead, he heads to Alabama to defend those wrongly condemned or who were not afforded proper representation, with the support of local advocate Eva Ansley (Brie Larson). One of his first, and most incendiary, cases is that of Walter McMillian (Jamie Foxx), who, in 1987, was sentenced to die for the notorious murder of an 18-year-old girl, despite a preponderance of evidence proving his innocence and the fact that the only testimony against him came from a criminal with a motive to lie. In the years that follow, Bryan becomes embroiled in a labyrinth of legal and political maneuverings and overt and unabashed racism as he fights for Walter, and others like him, with the odds-and the system-stacked against them.
