If you ever heard Bryan Stevenson speak, he stirs emotions. He delivers difficult-to-hear harsh truths but manages to line each word with a glowing thread of hope — and his sentiment, hough delivered with a mild-mannered even-handedness, is assertive and motivates social change. A lawyer, activist and founder of the Equal Justice Initiative, Stevenson's book Just Mercyis a vessel for his story of prison reform and will make its way to theaters with the talented Destin Daniel Cretton in the director's chair. The pair joined the New Hollywood Podcast for a live recording at the Toronto International Film Festival to talk about the film and shed an urgent light on the need for prison reform and how inclusive storytelling in Hollywood can inspire change in real life.
