Sandra Bullock stars as a matriarchal figure in Nora Fingscheidt’s The Unforgiveable. In the film, she portrays a woman who has recently been released from prison for a heinous crime.
In a society that refuses to forget her past, she has difficulty finding a place for herself. In his review, Indianexpress.com’s Rohan Naahar said, “The Unforgivable undercuts itself, and mocks its own title, in a strange way.”. It is understandable that Ruth can be forgiven. Especially after you’ve experienced the plot twist with which the movie ends. It’s worth noting, at this point, that Fingscheidt and her team of writers—Peter Craig, Hillary Seitz, and Courtenay Miles—have retained this ‘twist’ from the original British miniseries on which the film is based. The wise move would’ve been to alter it.”
