Critic Reviews for Clemency
Woodard's performance as a woman at the point of cracking is the reason to see this film.
Ms. Woodard is superb, as always, in a role that sets up a formidable barrier between character and audience. We understand what's happening to Bernadine, but it's hard to have any sense of dramatic release because her repression is almost unrelenting.
The movie's moral and emotional burden rests on the capable shoulders of Alfre Woodard.
This is screen acting of a very rare sort, and Clemency is a vital emotional powerhouse sorely deserving of being seen.
"Clemency" is remarkable for the understanding it affords to all involved with its wrenching subject matter.
