#JustMercy: A small scale judicial drama, that's more Short Term Twelve than Glass Castle! I'm a sucker for a good courtcase drama, and this checked all the right notes! @michaelb4jordan is terrific! @brielarson ruled! #JamieFoxx deserves an Oscar Nom! #TIFF19 pic.twitter.com/FWpX6qPl64— David Cuevas is @ TIFF 2019 (@ticktockanimate) September 7, 2019
The anticipated drama 'Just Mercy' premiered at this year's Toronto Film Festival, and early buzz and reviews are already halfway near handing Jamie Foxx his second Oscar (probably supporting) and tons of love, accolades, and Oscar talk for Michael B. Jordan as well (as lead). The movie itself is getting rave reviews and will likely be a big awards contender.
Wow! #JustMercy is a winner! Emotional and powerful, this story is just a fragment of many injustices of POC and needs to be seen. Michae B. Jordan was amazing but Jamie Foxx & Rob Morgan phenomenal. Not a dry eye in my row.— Wilson Morales (@blackfilm) September 7, 2019
#JustMercy is a deeply moving & important film that is easily one of the best films of the Year. A searing & vital piece of black cinema. A triumphant ode to the work & lives of amazing people. Jamie Foxx is beyond phenomenonal, and could be heading for the Oscar stage. #TIFF19 pic.twitter.com/KVa5wjXE1j— International Film Critique @ #TIFF19 (@IntFilmCritique) September 7, 2019
Michael B. Jordan has somehow never been nominated for an Oscar. #JustMercy, where he plays a modern-day Atticus Finch trying to save a man wrongfully comvincted of a murder, should change that. #TIFF19— Ramin Setoodeh (@RaminSetoodeh) September 7, 2019
#JustMercy is a tense, wildly engaging death-row drama that’s hard to watch at times, but also the kind of film that inspires multiple rounds of applause during the screening. Jamie Foxx and Michael B. Jordan are terrific. Will be an audience favorite for sure#TIFF19 pic.twitter.com/iiNJeO8C6B— Erik Davis (@ErikDavis) September 7, 2019
