First Glance: “The Unforgivable”

Sandra Bullock returns with her first feature film since the popular Netflix horror-thriller “Bird Box”. She’s once again teaming up with the streaming giant in “The Unforgivable”, an upcoming drama that is part of Netflix’s packed awards season lineup. The film is directed by Nora Fingscheidt and written by the trio of Peter Craig, Hillary Seitz, and Courtenay Miles. It’s based on Sally Wainwright’s 2009 British miniseries “Unforgiven”.

Bullock plays Ruth Slater who is released from prison after serving 20 years for an especially heinous crime. But her attempt at re-entering society proves to be difficult. The community she returns to isn’t ready to forgive her and the only path to redemption may be in reconnecting with her estranged younger sister. Bullock is joined by a sparkling cast that includes Viola Davis, Vincent D’Onofrio, Jon Bernthal, Rob Morgan, and Richard Thomas.

“The Unforgivable” is scheduled for a limited theatrical release November 24th and will stream on Netflix December 10th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.

  1. I seen this picture many a year ago. That Clint Eastern feller went crazy at the end and shot every body and cussed them.

  2. I saw the trailer for this film yesterday. Looks interesting. The cast itself is definitely something to look forward to. I just hope it’s not another Hillbilly Elegy.
