Reviews

  • "Dark and unsettling, THE FORGIVEN doesn’t ask us to like its characters, but it forces us to watch as privilege begins to shatter and people for whom everything feels inconsequential have to deal with consequences."
    - TheWrap
  • "While this nasty film seems headed toward a conclusion where the rich win and the status quo is maintained, that’s abruptly shattered by a violent climax that assures that no one on either side of the divide is left without a bloodstain."
    - IndieWire
  • "Fiennes and Chastain loathe each other well, convincingly bickering about whatever emerges from the other's mouth while still ensuring enough care to suggest a history."
    - Little White Lies
