Critic Reviews for Clemency
Clemency is one of those deliberately harrowing movies that leaves you feeling elated. The very precision of the film-making gives you a sense of hope.
The moral and ethical debates around the death penalty rarely touch on the toll it takes on the people involved, but that's the grey area writer-director Chinonye Chukwu explores with a humanist's touch and an keen ear for all her characters.
It's a towering performance from Woodard, her career masterpiece, and she is first among equals in an outstanding cast.
Woodard's, obviously, is the talking-point performance, a ridiculously nuanced turn that will keep drama students occupied for years.
Moving. Woodard is superb. A good way to spend your time.
