A woman is released from prison after serving a sentence for a violent crime and re-enters a society that refuses to forgive her past.



The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - Johanna Schneller
Drawn, taut and nearly silent, Bullock convincingly creates a shell of wariness and self-protection, and then gradually lets it crack.
Los Angeles Times - Roxana Hadadi
The Unforgivable transcends its own self-importance and becomes an experience that is often rattling, challenging and haunting.
TheWrap - Elizabeth Weitzman
A tightly-drawn Bullock is fully in tune with Ruth’s pain, making her extreme introversion an evident side effect of trauma rather than personality. Because Ruth keeps so much inside, Fingscheidt uses every element to create a sensory connection between this difficult character and the audience.
Chicago Sun-Times - Richard Roeper
Sandra Bullock has starred in only seven films in the last decade, and along with Gravity in 2013, her two most intriguing roles by far have been courtesy of the streaming giant Netflix: first with the smash hit horror film Bird Box (2018) and now with The Unforgivable, which has prestige credentials, a brilliant, A-list cast and a few moments of near-greatness, but is ultimately a disappointing and frustrating viewing experience due mostly to script and editing problems.
The Hollywood Reporter - David Rooney
A strong cast and tightly focused direction make The Unforgivable an engrossing enough redemption drama, though this Americanized feature adaptation of British TV writer Sally Wainwright’s 2009 miniseries, Unforgiven, doesn’t always benefit from its condensed plotting.
