Warner Bros. and Amazon Prime streams a Movie free after George Floyd'd Death
Jeya Suriya -
Even a non-regular news savant would have gone through the case of George Floyd. The USA, despite the COVID-19 Pandemic, has got protesting people in copious regions of the country.
On the eve of this nationwide protest following the death of George Floyd, Warner Bros. Pictures reached out the world to share an important tale for free. The American Based Hollywood company has announced that its critically celebrated 2019 film "Just Mercy" will stream for free on Amazon Prime Video. The Hollywood studio has released an online statement that the film would be streaming online to the audience free on the entire month of June.
Their statement read,
We believe in the power of story. Our film Just Mercy, based on the life work of civil rights attorney Bryan Stevenson, is one resource we can humbly offer to those who are interested in learning more about the systemic racism that plagues our society. For the month of June, Just Mercy will be available to rent for free across digital platforms in the U.S. To actively be part of the change our country is so desperately seeking, we encourage you to learn more about our past and the countless injustices that have led us to where we are today. Thank you to the artists, storytellers and advocates who helped make this film happen. Watch with your family, friends and allies.

"Just Mercy" is not meant to be looked up as an education of the moment. We believe the Hollywood drama speaks volumes about American History. The movie stars Michael B. Jordan as Harvard law grad where he plays the role of Bryan Stevenson and Jamie Foxx, the Django Unchained actor in the role of the Walter "Johnnie D. McMillian". Jamie Foxx was nominated for a SAG award and won an NAACP Image Award for his role.
This is a Hollywood cinema and not a documentary where it has famous actors in important roles. Both the incredibly talented actors had worked hard to bring these real characters to life on the screen. The movie is set a decade back and runs for close to 140 minutes.
The movie is based on the book written by Bryan Stevenson - Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and redemption The author of the book Stevenson's wrote about the death of George Floyd and the ongoing enigma of police brutality last week.
