Clemency
Chinonye Chukwu ABD, 2019
Working from Chukwu’s sensitive, authentic screenplay – which eschews any melodrama or mawkishness in favour of a gritty, unrelenting realism and treats every character with humanity and respect – Woodard puts in a phenomenal performance which should have attracted Academy attention.

The simultaneous expressiveness and defiant unreadability of Woodard’s face in this film, and in these last moments in particular, speak both to the exhilaration of great acting and to the essential limitations of what an actor can inherently communicate about a topic so monumental, monstrous, and irreconcilable.

Sometimes acting seems like possession. That’s how Alfre Woodard’s performance in “Clemency” feels as she violently sweeps you up with the force of her talent. It takes a while before you grasp how deep she’s gone.

Ultimately, the film fails to support its hand-wringing with any form of of emotional engagement, effectively turning a just cause into an exercise in tedium.
