I’m glad that Sandra Bullock said yes to The Unforgivable, a well-executed tale of one woman’s journey to reconnect with her sister after finishing a twenty-year prison sentence.
Directed by Nora Fingscheidt, what stood out immediately, in addition to the excellent performances, is how engaging the story is. I cared about Bullock’s character and couldn’t wait for everything to unfold. At the same time, the pacing and story edit are both so good to the point where I hardly found myself wanting things to move faster.
Then there’s the perfectly complementary musical score and the kind of tense moments that never have one too sure about how things will unfold.
Even though there is one moment where I felt the catalyst that was supposed to lead to a key character’s change of heart was insubstantial, The Unforgivable is still worth watching.
See it for the generally well-executed story and because Viola Davis, Rob Morgan, Vincent D’Onofrio and Jon Bernthal make up the supporting cast.
Happy Film Loving

I keep seeing the banner for it on netflix and wondered if it was any good. You’ve convinced me to give it a watch.
Excellent! 🤓 I hope you enjoy it. The performances and story do not disappoint.
Agreed! And Gloria I hope you had a good Holiday season and also wanted to say HAPPY 2022!!! I mean it’s got to get better right?!!! I feel like surge will happen, then slow down some, and I hope you stay safe and you are one of the most fun people I follow here..I always enjoy reading what you post so I look forward to more in 2022!!! 🙂
Peggy, you sweetie! Your posts are a highlight for me too, by the way. I hope that you also a good festive season. It feels strange that we’re now in 2022. I just know that I’ll be accidentally calling it 2020 for some months to come. Also, it doesn’t help that ‘2022’ feels a little bit like a tongue twister to say, right? Things will indeed get better in this year because we collectively will it so. Happy New Year lovely Peggy. Looking forward to more from you very soon. ❤️
YAY! I’m so glad we’ve ‘met’ here and have followed for a few years now. I completely agree on the tongue twister of 2022.. it’s just so bizarre to even think about that at this time last year I was in sheer hell with Covid.. While things aren’t great – I want to pretend 2021 didn’t even exist. hahahahahaha Sending love & hugs to you for a great year! 🙂
The way you feel about 2021 is how I felt about 2020. Thank goodness both years are behind us. 🙏 Only up and up from now on.
I honestly could say that 2020 just almost didn’t even exist like it was a completely lost year. it’s tough to pick which one is worse.. ha!
Good pacing and story edit✓✓ Makes me happy!
Me too! Without those two, I’ll stop watching something pretty quickly.
Happy New Year and looking forward to watching this at the weekend!
I’m looking forward to seeing this one, thanks for the review!
Hi Gloria! I love Sandra Bullock but for some reason I’m not clamoring to see this one. I might give it a watch when I’m in the right mood though, and I do love Viola Davis!
I like this movie as I love to watch Sandra!
I agree in FULL! 😁 She is truly great in it. Beautiful heartbreaking stuff.
