A decade ago, Scott Budnick was a producer on the highest-grossing R-rated comedy ever, The Hangover. Now, he’s an executive producer of Just Mercy, which is about as serious as a movie can get. It’s the true story of an African-American Harvard Law School graduate, Bryan Stevenson, who goes to Alabama to defend inmates on death row and takes the case of a man who’s been wrongfully convicted. It’s an incredibly powerful film. Scott’s own life transformation will make you think deeply, as well.
