The right to object – Plot and trailer

A powerful and inspiring true story, “The Right to Object” follows young lawyer Bryan Stevenson (Jordan) and his historic fight for justice. After graduating from Harvard, Bryan could have chosen lucrative jobs early on. Instead, he heads to Alabama to defend wrongfully convicted individuals, with the backing of local attorney Eva Ansley (Larson). One of his first and most controversial cases is that of Walter McMillian (Foxx), who in 1987 was sentenced to death for the famous murder of an 18-year-old girl, despite the preponderance of evidence proving his innocence, and the fact that the only testimony against him is that of a criminal with a motive to lie. In the years that follow, Bryan will find himself in a maze of legal and political maneuvering, of blatant and blatant racism, as he fights for Walter, and others like him, with the odds – and the system – against.

Each of us is more than the worst thing we’ve ever done. I am convinced that the opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice. Finally, I have come to believe that the true measure of our commitment to justice, fairness and equality cannot be measured by how we treat the rich, respected and privileged among us. The true measure of our character is in how we treat the poor, the underprivileged, the accused, the inmates, and the condemned – Bryan Stevenson

Trivia about the movie

  • The film is directed by Destin Daniel Cretton (The Glass Castle, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings) from his own screenplay written with Andrew Lanham (The Kid) based on the book “Just Mercy” by Bryan Stevenson. Cretton and Lanham also collaborated on The Glass Castle and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Cretton was recently desigano to direct the film Marvel Avengers: The Kang Dynasty (2025).

For his work, Stevenson has also been awarded the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence, an NAACP Image Award, and the Dayton Literary Peace Prize for Nonfiction.
  • The creative team working with Cretton behind the scenes includes cinematographer Brett Pawlak, production designer Sharon Seymour and editor Nat Sanders. Also part of the team is costume designer Francine Jamison-Tanchuck (“Detroit,” “End of Justice”).

  • In one scene, Bryan and Eva are sitting on the banks of the Alabama River watching a reconstructed nineteenth-century riverboat (the Harriott) go by. Bryan tells Eva, “No one wants to remember that this is where thousands of enslaved people were shipped and paraded down the street to be sold. Ten miles from here, black people have been torn from their homes and lynched and nobody talks about it. This is a nod to the fact that years after the making of this film, in the 2000s, Stevenson’s organization, the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI), expanded its mission; While it continues to provide legal defense and advocacy for death row prisoners, children in adult prisons, people who have been wrongly convicted, and others in need of defense, it has also begun to commemorate the history of slavery and lynching in America. In April 2018, EJI opened two new facilities. One was the Legacy Museum: From Enslavement to Mass Incarceration, a museum located in a former warehouse where black people were enslaved in downtown Montgomery, Alabama. The other was the National Memorial for Peace and Justice, dedicated to the legacy of enslaved blacks and people terrorized and killed by lynching. EJI also works with communities to install historical markers that recognize lynchings in those cities past.

Jordan for National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered,” Jordan said that “Right to Objection” was the first film he had made with the “Inclusion Rider” clause and added: ” I finally had the set I’ve always wanted to have.” The meaning of “Inclusion Rider” was explained by Frances McDormand; the actress awarded with the statuette for Three Billboards at Ebbing he said: “I only found out about this clause last week, basically putting it in your contract you can ask that, not only the cast but also all the technical staff, be made up of at least 50% people belonging to minorities. There’s no going back now.”
