Just Mercy Connoisseur Screening

Palace Cinemas an Connoisseur Gourmet Ice-Cream are thrilled to invite you to a special event of the powerful and thought-provoking true story, Just Mercy (M) at a Film Connoisseur Screening on January 22.

At 6:00 pm enjoy a glass of prosecco and a Connoisseur Gourmet Ice-Cream stick on arrival before the screening commences at 6:15 pm.

Starring Michael B. Jordan and Oscar winners Jamie Foxx and Brie Larson, Just Mercy brings one of the most important cases of our time to the big screen. Following the story of Bryan Stevenson, a young lawyer who, rather than finding lucrative work after graduating from Harvard, moved to Alabama to defend those without the means to defend themselves, finds the case of Walter McMillian (Foxx), a man who was sentenced to death for the notorious murder of an 18-year-old girl, despite evidence proving his innocence. Bryan becomes embroiled in a labyrinth of political manoeuvrings and overt racism as he fights for Walter against a corrupt system is this inspiring and powerful true story.
